Throwback Thursday to March 2006, when this photo was taken. Fermilab’s Duane Newhart sits inside a giant magnet, whose construction began in 1947.

Happy new year! The snow-laden branches and strong, slender tree trunks of the woods around Fermilab create a calming setting to walk around in.

From atop Wilson Hall, you can see, from left, the Chicago skyline, Terrace Tower in Oak Brook and buildings in Naperville shimmering in late afternoon sunlight.
