From Elle Italia, February 11, 2022: On World Day of Women in Science, there are Italians who have made history and have contributed to breaking down gender prejudice in science despite women continuing to be underrepresented in the world of science and technology. Included is this impressive list of Italian women in science is Fermilab’s Anna Grassellino.
CNN, February 11, 2022: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln discusses how nuclear fusion technology has developed into a commercial technology. Fusion could revolutionize how energy is generated across the globe and have significant impacts on the world’s future climate.
From the Daily Herald, February 4, 2022: The Daily Herald Editorial Board heralds Fermilab as a gem in the Batavia region for the past 55 years with the important science work the lab has done and continues to do in the future.
From Physics World, February 3, 2022: Fermilab’s Wilson Hall was included and discussed in this episode of Physics World Weekly podcast about what makes a good physics building. At 17:25, Wilson Hall is described as one of the most beautiful buildings in physics and was very modern for 1960’s architecture when cement was so prevalently used in building construction.
From Science Times, January 31, 2022: The Hubble Space Telescope captured a stunning image of the Phoenix constellation with a group of galaxies collectively known as NGC that is approximately 450 million light-years away from Earth. The picture of three galaxies interacting was taken using a combination of the Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys that includes the Dark Energy Survey Camera (DECam), developed and tested at Fermilab.
From the Rapid City Journal, January 20, 2022: A 2021 economic study done for SURF and the South Dakota Science and Technology Authority shows the large economic impacts in advancing South Dakota’s economy. The impacts include job creation, household earnings, and spending for activities and experiments at SURF and the LBNF/DUNE. The partnership with Fermilab to construct and operate part of the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility at SURF will result in significant spending and employment in South Dakota in the coming decades.
