Fermilab on display

The national laboratory opened usually inaccessible areas of its campus to thousands of visitors to celebrate 50 years of discovery.

On Tuesday, Fermilab celebrated the 60th anniversary of the discovery of the neutrino with cake in the Wilson Hall atrium. On June 14, 1956, Los Alamos scientists Clyde Cowan and Frederick Reines sent a telegram to Wolfgang Pauli confirming they had “definitely detected neutrinos.”
