There’s no one best way to build a telescope.
The APS awarded two prestigious prizes, the Panofsky Prize and the Wilson Prize, to four scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
This episode features an edition of Particle/Counter Particle. In this science debate show, two physicists discuss the possible existence of “sterile neutrinos,” a theorized fourth kind of neutrino. If sterile neutrinos exist, it would be a radical discovery, adding a new building block to the Standard Model of Particle Physics.
Many animals are on the move in fall to find a safe place to spend winter. What should you do if you find an animal inside a building or in an unusual spot outdoors?
Creating a hypersensitive dark matter detector in a clean lab more than a mile underground is no mean feat in and of itself. Add a closed border and COVID restrictions to the mix, and you have the scenario that Fermilab, SNOLAB and the SENSEI collaboration faced. Undeterred, they found a way to proceed with installation.
Griselda Lopez oversees Fermilab’s site access process, the Badging office, the Users Office and Recreations. She values the opportunity her role gives her to work with people from different disciplines, divisions and sections.
On Oct. 13, the American Physical Society announced the recipients of the 2021 APS Fellowships. Two Fermilab scientists were selected as 2021 APS fellows.
The Fermilab Office of Communication is pleased to share the latest issue of Particles, a monthly newsletter from Fermilab senior management that covers key projects and initiatives and the “behind-the-scenes” support critical to our success.
The answer has to do with dark matter’s role in shaping the cosmos.
fSHPE offers a communal experience and cultural connection for the lab’s Hispanic members, as well as meaningful outreach opportunities.
Led by Marcela Carena, this brand-new division at the lab features three departments: Particle Theory, Astrophysics Theory and Quantum Theory.
Fermilab recently recognized a group of dedicated employees for their outstanding contributions with Exceptional Performance Recognition Awards. Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer and laboratory leadership presented the awards during a virtual reception on Sept. 29.

From the Daily Herald, October 17, 2021: The Fermilab Arts and Lecture Series will continues with a virtual program titled, “Eat the Invaders: Can Harvesting Introduced Species Reduce Their Impact?” presented Dr. Joe Roman of the University of Vermont on November 19.
From CNN, October 12, 2021: Yesterday, William Shatner, otherwise known as Capt. James Tiberius Kirk, soared into space 100 kilometers above sea level to the Kármán line recognized as the international boundary between Earth and space. As Fermilab’s Don Lincoln explains, while Shatner’s brief visit to space is historic, it is also an inspiration to all regardless of age.
