From Science News, April 14, 2021: Black and Hispanic workers remain underrepresented while it varies widely by field for women. Fermilab’s Jessica Esquivel is interviewed in this story on the Pew Research report that shows ethnic and gender gaps in STEM professions.
From The 21st NPR Illinois, April 14, 2021: Fermilab scientist Brendan Kiburg discusses the Muon g-2 result with host Brian Mackey on the 21st Illinois talk show.
From U Chicago News, April 13, 2021: Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and the University of Chicago have demonstrated a new technique based on quantum technology that will advance the search for dark matter, which accounts for 85% of all matter in the universe.
From Reccom Magazine, April 13, 2021: After decades of speculation, a Fermilab experiment showing an unexplained discrepancy from the Standard Model was raised to a confidence level of 4.2 sigma.
From Smithsonian Magazine, April 9, 2021: Results from two particle physics experiments have come tantalizingly close to discovering a gap in the Standard Model.
From Forbes, April 7, 2021: Don Lincoln, senior scientist at Fermilab, explains that a new measurement announced by Fermilab last week goes a long way towards telling us if the venerable theory will need revising.
From New Scientist, April 7, 2021: The strange behavior of a fundamental particle called a muon may hint at the existence of exotic particles and forces beyond the standard model of physics.
From CNN, April 7, 2021: Fermilab’s senior scientist Don Lincoln explains the Muon g-2 experiment’s single measurement tells scientists the standard model of particle physics is incomplete — and has to be rethought.
From National Geographic, April 8, 2021: In a landmark experiment, a collaboration of scientists led by Fermilab has found fresh evidence that a subatomic particle is disobeying one of science’s most watertight theories, the Standard Model of particle physics.
From the Associated Press, April 7, 2021: Fermilab announced results Wednesday of 8.2 billion races along a track that have physicists astir: The muons’ magnetic fields don’t seem to be what the Standard Model says they should be.
