In the 2021 Fermilab Physics Slam, each contender had 10 minutes to present their topic in the most interesting way possible. This annual favorite was presented in a new, virtual format, with a Zoom audience choosing the Physics Slam Champion.

"The Golden Particles" in text, with a glowing yellow "O" in the word Golden. Text is oerlaid onto photo of Fermilab campus, showing a 16-story concrete building and reflection pool to the right, prairie to the left and blue skies.

Put on your fanciest outfit and join us for an evening to remember at the inaugural Golden Particles, a fake award show celebrating the smallest things in nature and the biggest research efforts in particle physics over the past year. This presentation won Fermilab science communicator Lauren Biron the 2021 Virtual Physics Slam at Fermilab on April 30.

A still with "Neutrino Flavors" written across the top. The o in flavors is a neutrino. Underneath it, the other two neutrino flavors illustrated, and a circle with a photo of a woman with dark hair and a pink and black top. Under her, it says "With guest Valerie Higgins." A woman with long brown hair holds an ice cream cone on the right side of the still.

Grab your bibs — in today’s tasty episode, we’re digging into neutrino flavors. Join Fermilab scientist Kirsty Duffy and archivist Valerie Higgins to meet the three flavors of neutrinos and learn how to catch a neutrino with a DONUT.

Text on a purple background reads: Dark Energy Survey Year 3 Update

To tackle big questions about our universe, the Dark Energy Survey uses a powerful 570-megapixel camera to photograph galaxies close to home and billions of light years away. The analysis of the first three years of data resulted in the largest maps ever made showing the distribution and shapes of galaxies in our universe — and provided a fantastic test for scientist’s best predictions.

The Muon g-2 experiment announced one of the most tantalizing physics measurements in over a decade. The measurement might tell us that our theoretical calculation is missing some new physical phenomena. Or, a new theoretical prediction points to the possibility that measurement and prediction basically agree. In this exciting video, Fermilab’s Don Lincoln shares an insider’s perspective.

Dr. Kirsty Duffy, a young woman with long hair, holds a large beach ball and smiles. An orange bubble has text with the question "How big is a neutrino?" beside her.

Have you ever wondered how big a particle is — or how scientists even measure something that tiny? Fermilab scientist Kirsty Duffy will answer a deceptively simple question with the help of some sports equipment: How big is a neutrino?

Don Lincoln video: Is antigravity real

Despite featuring in sci-fi and many UFO reports, Antigravity is an idea that is potentially scientifically reputable, and scientists at CERN are investigating possible connections between antimatter and antigravity. Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln covers both the fact and fiction of this interesting topic.

Take a virtual tour of the newly-upgraded Ross hoistroom and rock conveyance system at the Sanford Underground Research Facility. Both the hoistroom and the conveyance system are critical to constructing LBNF and DUNE a mile below the surface.

Let’s talk about some of the largest explosions in the universe: supernovae. Join Fermilab scientists Dr. Kirsty Duffy and Dr. Anne Schukraft to find out more about exploding stars, tiny particles and the SuperNova Early Warning System (SNEWS).
