from CERN, June 21, 2021: Yesterday, CERN held a first stone ceremony for Science Gateway, the Laboratory’s new flagship project for science education and outreach.
From the Black Hills Pioneer, June 20, 2021: The former Homestake Gold Mine was the largest and deepest in the western hemisphere and today it is the largest science project attempted on U.S. soil. The LBNF/DUNE includes a collaboration of more than 1,300 scientists from 32 countries. Read more about the significant impacts LBNF/DUNE is having on South Dakota.
From L’Embarque (France), June 17, 2021: The MLCommons consortium which Fermilab is a part of, announced a new benchmark that defines targets in a variety of use cases implementing “compact” (tiny) neural networks typically weighing 100 KB, or even less.
From Science Magazine, June 17, 2021: Fermilab is part of the research group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison which has found evidence that computer errors are correlated across an entire superconducting quantum computing chip — highlighting a problem that must be acknowledged and addressed in the quest for fault-tolerant quantum computers.
From AI Business, June 16, 2021: Fermilab was part of a consortium helping in the development of the TinyML benchmark from MLCommons to measure machine learning performance that will bring intelligence to devices like wearables, thermostats, and cameras.
From CNN, June 17, 2021: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln discusses the much anticipated Pentagon report expected later this month, detailing what the US military knows about UFOs.
From the California News Times, June 9, 2021: There is a new robotics project at Fermilab called Argonaut and its mission is to sail into a sea of liquid argon kept at minus 193 degrees Celsius to monitor the condition inside the ultra-low temperature particle detector.
From CERN, June 15, 2021: A new study shows a class of new unknown particles that could account for the muon’s magnetism, known as leptoquarks, also affects the Higgs boson’s transformation into muons.
From the Dallas Morning News, June 13, 2021: The results of the April 7 Muon g-2 result strongly disagreed with the standard model and it is incumbent upon us now to explain this observation, writes Stephen Sekula, chair of physics and an associate professor of experimental particle physics at Southern Methodist University.
From Kathimerini (Greece), June 14, 2021: A multinational team of 400 researchers from 25 research centers in seven countries announced the results of the DES study that looked at 226 million galaxies and thousands of supernova explosions. The DES measurements, like those of other similar galactic surveys, informed us that the current universe is less dense than our model predicts.
