On April 27, Fermilab broke ground on the building that will house the future Short-Baseline Near Detector. The particle detector is one of three that, together, Fermilab scientists and collaborators will use to search for the sterile neutrino.
The collaboration between Russian institutions and Fermilab in the 1980s became, for some, a symbol of two competing countries overcoming their differences and working together to move the field of particle physics forward.
Nikolay Kuropatkin, Marty Murphy, Brian Nord and Brian Yanny created this photo of a galaxy, currently on display as part of the “Art of Darkness” exhibit in the Fermilab Art Gallery. A reception takes place on March 18 from 5-7 p.m.
