From CERN, November 2017: It has been a little over seven (and a half) years since the LHC started delivering collisions to CMS for physics analysis, and just a few days ago we published our 700th research paper.

From Rapid City Journal, Nov. 29, 2017: For more than five years, Ross Shaft crews have been stripping out old steel and lacing, cleaning out decades of debris, adding new ground support and installing new steel to prepare the shaft for its future role in world-leading science. On Oct. 12, all that hard work paid off when the team, which worked its way down from the surface, reached a major milestone: the 4850 Level. Deputy Director Chris Mossey weighs in.

From National Science Foundation tumblr, Nov. 7, 2017: NSF Director France Cordova gives highlights of her Oct. 31 visit to Fermilab.

From ASCR Discovery, October 2017: The cosmological search in the dark is no walk in the park. With help from Berkeley Lab, Fermilab aims open-source software at data from high-energy physics. Fermilab’s Oliver Gutsche, Jim Kowalkowski and Saba Sehrish talk about Spark

From SpaceRip, Oct. 27, 2017: In this 7-minute video featuring photography and animated simulations of outer space, Dark Energy Survey Director Josh Frieman talks about DES and the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope and how these surveys will help us understand dark energy.
