From Bloomberg, May 8: Michael Bloomberg, founder and owner of Bloomberg News, writes an opinion piece about increased funding for the national labs using the Fermilab Muon g-2 result as an example of the federal government’s investment in the lab’s and the long-term results of research and collaborative experiments.
From DOE Office of Science, May 4, 2021: Secretary Granholm Visits Howard University in First In-Person Event to Discuss Workplace Diversity and Inclusive Research Opportunities.
From Nature, May 5, 2021: The established theory of the standard model, and has passed a vast number of experimental tests with flying colors. But one such test — the determination of the magnetic moment of an elementary particle known as the muon — has resulted in a long-standing discrepancy between theory and experiment.
