From The Beacon News, June 13, 2016: Fermilab usually invites the public indoors to attend expos and science demonstrations, but Sunday afternoon was a day to be outside for the ninth annual Family Outdoor Fair.
From NOVA, May 31, 2016: Inside the Fermilab particle accelerator, then Harvard undergraduate Sarah Demers, now a professor at Yale University, used an instrument to look on as protons collided at near light-speed with their opposites—antiprotons—and the resulting particle shards decayed after the cataclysmic blast.
From SLAC, June 1, 2016: Fermilab is one of the collaborating groups preparing to build an ultrasensitive ‘eye’ for an elusive form of matter.
From Cosmos Magazine, May 19, 2016: The most elusive particles in the universe – neutrinos – might not stay hidden for much longer. Testing for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, or DUNE, began earlier this year.

From WDCB 90.9 FM, May 10, 2016: Artist Stephen Cartwright loves the pattern of data and uses it to create art. His visualizations are the basis of the artworks on display at the Fermilab Art Gallery.
From Cold Facts, April 20, 2016: Fermilab’s work on LCLS-II is highlighted in a round-up of cryogenic facilities at national laboratories.
From Nature, April 29, 2016: A request to christen the newborn animal kicks off a flurry of physics puns.
From The 21st, May 5, 2016: Check out this interview between The 21st and Rod Walton, Fermilab environmental consultant, as he helps us get better acquainted with the hoofed beasts that may soon be named the national mammal.
From WTTW’s Chicago Tonight, April 27, 2016: The bison herd at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory just got a little bigger. On Tuesday, the first bison calf of 2016 was born at the particle physics laboratory located in suburban Batavia, roughly 35 miles from Chicago.
