From KRWG, June 26, 2018: The three-year grant will fund New Mexico State University physics faculty, students and postdoctoral researchers for three projects: SeaQuest, MicroBooNE and PHENIX.
From Texas A&M University, June 26, 2018: Toback points to CDF’s impact in its landmark 700th paper published last year in Physical Review D and in how it’s shed new light on the production rate of charm quarks.
From ABC7 Chicago, June 10, 2018: Fermilab is featured on ABC show Built to Last, picked up by dozens of ABC affiliates. The 13-minute segment includes interviews with Tim Meyer, Valerie Higgins and Rhonda Merchut. Scroll to episode 5. Fermilab segment starts at 1:31.
From Universe Today, June 20, 2018: A Fermilab astrophysicist recently conducted a study that indicates how a sufficiently advanced civilization might be able to harvest Local Group stars and prevent them from expanding outward.
From Russia Today, June 21, 2018: Expansion of the universe, thought to be further accelerated by dark energy, is flinging matter apart, while galaxies are being pushed away from each other. This is a challenge alien technologies will have to deal with in order for them to survive, Fermilab’s Dan Hooper writes in a new study.
From Science News, June 19, 2018: Fermilab physicist Dan Hooper proposes that, to offset a future cosmic energy shortage caused by the accelerating expansion of the universe, a super-advanced civilization could pluck stars from other galaxies and bring them home. It’s a far-out idea, tackling a dilemma in a future so distant that human beings can hardly fathom it: 100 billion years from now, each neighborhood of the universe will be marooned as if on a cosmic island, with resources from the rest of the universe inaccessible.
From CNN, June 19, 2018: Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln explains how studying neutrinos became an intellectual industry. There were dozens of independent experiments telling a consistent story, each reporting similar values for the parameters being studied. Well, except for one.
From Nachrichten Welt, June 18, 2018: German publication picks up Don Lincoln’s Live Science article on MiniBooNE and its search for the sterile neutrino.
From La Voz de Cadiz, June 18, 2018: El periodista José Manuel Nieves habla sobre el reciente hallazgo de la mayor evidencia que existe por el momento a favor de los neutrinos estériles.
From Live Science, June 18, 2018: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln gives the lowdown on how scientists discovered neutrino oscillation, leading into MiniBooNE’s latest measurement related to the sterile neutrino.
