From Coast to Coast with George Noory, August 17, 2022: Fermilab’s senior scientist Don Lincoln talks about his time working on the Tevatron at Fermilab and the LHC at CERN. Listen to find out more about the restart of the LHC and the big mysteries in astronomy regarding dark matter and how galaxies defy physics.
From Big Think, August 13, 2022: After decades of research, astronomers cannot explain how and why galaxies exist. Fermilab’s Don Lincoln discusses the hypothesis of dark matter as the undiscovered form of matter to explain this galactic mystery.
From Science News, August 4, 2022: A proposed experiment called Windchime, will try something new: It will search for dark matter using the only force it is guaranteed to feel — gravity. Fermilab physicist Dan Hooper chimes in on what this experiment can mean to the study of dark matter.
Dark matter is invisible; it’s everywhere; and it doesn’t interact with matter very often. The same is true for neutrinos. So are neutrinos dark matter? Neutrino physicist Kirsty Duffy and neutrino/dark matter researcher Asher Kaboth (Royal Holloway, University of London) break down the most likely dark matter candidates and where neutrinos fit into the mix.
From U Chicago News, April 12, 2022: Scientists from the University of Chicago and Fermilab have released an innovative new design for an experiment called the the Broadband Reflector Experiment for Axion Detection (BREAD) to find the mysterious substance is known as dark matter. BREAD, is especially promising because it can look for possible axions with a range of different masses.
