From the Kane County Chronicle, Aug. 3, 2016: When the Fermilab Natural Areas organization does habitat restoration, it means more than just pulling weeds. Volunteers may also end up learning about ecology.
In the news
From Nature, Aug. 5, 2016: The intriguing data “bump” at the Large Hadron Collider — first reported in December — turns out to be nothing more than a statistical fluctuation.
From Gizmodo, July 26, 2016: Ever wanted to build a particle accelerator in your basement? Well if one University of Liverpool PhD student gets his way, you may soon be able to do that – with LEGO.
From Physics, July 26, 2016: A team at MIT analyzes data from Fermilab’s MINOS neutrino experiment. The results rule out a class of realist models in which the evolving system does not depend on any “memory” of its initial state.
From CERN Courier, July 8, 2016: Established in 2013 following recommendations from the European Strategy document, the CERN Neutrino Platform ensures Europe’s participation in next-generation long- and short-baseline neutrino experiments in Japan and the United States
From Motherboard, July 20, 2016: A team of MIT physicists has observed quantum correlations extending 456 miles from Fermilab’s MINOS experiment near Chicago to an underground detector in Minnesota.
From Science, July 12, 2016: Data from the MINOS neutrino experiment show that the elusive subatomic particles must literally be of two mutually exclusive types at once—poking a hole in our intuitive sense of reality.
From CERN Courier, July 8, 2016: Caltech’s Ryan Patterson and Fermilab’s Peter Shanahan report on new measurements of neutrino oscillations at NOvA.
From APS News, July 2016: Indian scientists have made significant contributions to the Fermilab program, so it is natural that India is already taking a very active role in the development of a world-leading neutrino physics research program in the U.S. Fermilab scientist Vladimir Shiltsev co-wrote this article.
From New Scientist, July 4, 2016: A new result from the NOvA and T2K experiments sheds light on the matter/antimatter imbalance in the early universe.
