From Quo (Spain), May 23, 2021: An interview with Pilar Hernández Gamazo to find out the scope of the muon case that will transform our understanding of the Universe. Pilar Hernández is a professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Valencia.
From the University of Chicago, May 21, 2021: Long-time University of Chicago professor of astronomy and astrophysics, Richard Kron created the Sloan Digital Sky Survey which set the stage for the Dark Energy Survey. Although he is retiring this year after 40 years of mapping the universe, he plans on staying on as director of the Dark Energy Survey.
From RECCOM Magazine (Italy), May 17, 2021: Dan Hooper talks about the possible existence of another universe. Physicists believe the Big Bang created equal amounts of matter and antimatter in the early history of the universe – but they can’t explain how antimatter vanished. Perhaps it is not and it resides isolated in some remote regions of our universe.
From Forbes, May 18, 2021: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln explains the Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino Experiment, in Germany that has improved our understanding of the mass of this insubstantial denizen of the microcosm.
From Wired, May 18, 2021: So imagine the excitement on April 7, when more than 200 physicists from seven countries convened on a Zoom call for a kind of nonexplosive gender-reveal party. What was to be disclosed was not a baby’s sex but the fate of particle physics.
From the Black Hills Pioneer, May 17, 2021 Activities at the Sanford Lab to have significant benefits for over the next decade as the construction of DUNE continues.
From Smithsonian Magazine, May 13, 2021: A group of scientists say the phenomenon could indicate dark matter speeding through our world at more than 300 miles a second. Fermilab’s Dan Hooper is quoted in this story about the study of flashes seen in ordinary lightning storms showing evidence of super-dense chunks of dark matter as they zip through our atmosphere.
From KOTA-TV (Rapid City, SD), May 16, 2021: Sanford has a $1.6 billion economic impact and generates over 1,000 jobs in South Dakota.
From EIN Presswire, May 14, 2021; LBNL’s LArPix experiment result is a leap forward in how to detect and record signals in liquid argon time projection chambers (LArTPCs), a technology of choice for future neutrino and dark matter experiments such as Fermilab’s DUNE.
From Forbes, May 14, 2021: Fermilab senior scientist Don Lincoln discusses measuring the size of neutron stars and the result of a measurement showing that the centers of neutron stars are stiff and not squishy.
