Scientists on two neutrino experiments—the MINOS experiment at Fermilab and the Daya Bay experiment in China—have presented results that limit the places where sterile neutrinos might be hiding.

The 27th International Conference on Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics, commonly called Neutrino 2016, will bring together scientists from experiments around the world. Scientists working with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory will give numerous presentations at Neutrino 2016 and unveil some significant results.

Before the Dark Energy Survey began in August 2013, scientists spent months testing the Dark Energy Camera, putting it through its paces. Now, catalogs of galaxies and stars derived from the data collected during the Science Verification season have been released to the public.

On the same weekend that saw the fourth Hunger Games movie open nationwide, hundreds of people trekked to Fermilab to watch the fourth iteration of our own ruthless competition. Five scientists took the stage on Friday night, and only one left — with a prize, that is.

It survived a month-long journey over 3,200 miles, and now the delicate and complex electromagnet is well on its way to exploring the unknown. The Muon g-2 ring has successfully cooled down to operating temperature and powered up, proving that even after a decade of inactivity, it remains a vital and viable scientific instrument.
