From Quanta, Aug. 3, 2017: Fermilab scientists Josh Frieman and Scott Dodelson talk about the latest major result from the Dark Energy Survey, which could signal the start of a new era of cosmology.
From Daily Herald, July 26, 2017: The ICARUS neutrino detector — the largest liquid-argon particle detector ever built — ended its intercontinental journey Wednesday, rolling through the gates of its new home at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia.
From The Beacon-News, July 26, 2017: Fermilab scientist Catherine James reflects on the large box sitting on a flatbed that contained half of the ICARUS liquid-argon particle detector, at 60 feet long and 120 tons the largest of its kind, which she will work with when its installed and running by the end of the year.
From LiveScience, July 21, 2017: On the occasion of the LBNF/DUNE groundbreaking, Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln explains why neutrinos are so compelling.
From Popular Mechanics, July 21, 2017: The DUNE experiment will study neutrinos and antineutrinos and possibly unravel the secrets of the universe.
From CNN, July 22, 2017: Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln explains how the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, which had its groundbreaking ceremony on July 21, could answer important questions of the universe, including, “Where did the antimatter go?”.
From The Wall Street Journal, July 21, 2017: Scientists celebrated the launch of an improbable physics experiment that will shoot subatomic particles through 800 miles of rock and dirt to study some fundamental cosmic riddles. [subscription required]
From Science, July 21, 2017: To build the modular detector, workers have to carve out massive caverns 1,480 meters underground, haul out stone that weighs as much as a dozen aircraft carries, and truck in millions of liters of frigid liquid argon. On July 21, officials gathered deep underground to turn the first few shovels of stone.
