From SLAC, Jan. 31, 2017: A full kilometer of SLAC’s historic linac has been stripped of all its equipment. Over the next two years it will be re-equipped with new technology to power an X-ray laser, LCLS-II. Fermilab and Jefferson Lab are building the cryomodules for its superconducting portion.

THE Port humanitarian hackathon at CERN brings people from multiple industries together to make the world a better place.

LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ), a next-generation dark matter detector that will be at least 100 times more sensitive than its predecessor, has cleared another approval milestone and is on schedule to begin its deep-underground hunt for theoretical particles, known as weakly interacting massive particles, in 2020.

From Northern Star, Sept. 15, 2016: Dan Boyden, third year physics graduate at Northern Illinois University, is hoping to be sent to Switzerland to work hands-on for DUNE, an international particle experiment including more than 140 labs and universities across 27 countries.

From Berkeley Lab, Aug. 9, 2016: DESI, the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument, will measure light from 35 million galaxies to provide new clues about dark energy. Fermilab is a collaborator on the Berkeley Lab project.
