DZero

IMSA students on the ground floor of DZero on Nov. 26, 2018. This continues to be one of the best tours at Fermilab. George Ginther and Stefan Gruenendahl always need tour guides. If you want to help with these tours, contact them for details on how to get involved. It is a ton of fun. people, DZero Photo: Elliott McCrory

Physicists often find thrifty, ingenious ways to reuse equipment and resources. What do you do about an 800-ton magnet originally used to discover new particles? Send it off on a months-long journey via truck, train and ship halfway across the world to detect oscillating particles called neutrinos, of course. It’s all part of the vast recycling network of the physics community.

Antimatter in the universe is extremely rare; the universe is made pretty much entirely out of matter. DZero digs deeper into a previous, unusual result measuring the difference between matter and antimatter.
