From CERN, April 1: The LHCb experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider has announced the discovery of Eggeron ηgg (eta-gg), familiarly known as the “Humpty Dumpty” particle, the smallest lump of nuclear glue.
From the BBC, March 30, 2018: Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer talks with the BBC about DUNE, the value of neutrino research, the Large Hadron Collider, and the construction of a Higgs factory.
From Giornale di Sicilia, March 19, 2018: The Italian media outlet picks up a CERN-produced video of Nicola McConkey, a University of Sheffield postdoctoral researcher and violinist, playing a reel inside a ProtoDUNE detector at CERN.
From Tecnomania, March 21, 2018: Esta animación muestra sobre unas bonitas imágenes aéreas el funcionamiento de los aceleradores de partículas del Fermilab –nombre coloquial del Laboratorio Nacional Fermi– que se construyó en 1967 en Illinois (Estados Unidos) hace ya la friolera de más de 50 años. Actualmente lo están «actualizando» y ampliando para llevar a cabo nuevos experimentos.
From Rapid City Journal: March 3, 2018: South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard touts DUNE and its positive economic effects for the state.

From Astronomy, Feb. 22, 2018: The supernova, dubbed DES16C2nm, was first detected back in August 2016 by the Dark Energy Survey, which is currently mapping several hundred million galaxies in order to learn more about the mysterious force known as dark energy.
From Newsweek, Feb. 21, 2018: DES162nm was first spotted in August 2016 using the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile. The investigations were part of an international collaboration known as the Dark Energy Survey—a project designed to map hundreds of millions of galaxies in a search for the mysterious force that is thought to be behind the accelerating expansion of the universe.
