From USA News Hub, May 10,2022: The Dark Energy Camera on the Víctor M. Blanco 4-meter Telescope, one of the most powerful cameras in the world just photographed two distant galaxies entwined in what’s been described as a “galactic ballet.” Read more about these amazing new images captured by the DECamera developed and tested at Fermilab.

This is the first image ever taken of a black hole. This black hole resides at the center of Messier 87, a massive galaxy in the nearby Virgo galaxy cluster.

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.

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 CNN, November 4, 2021: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln examines the astronomical measurements recorded from a laboratory at the South Pole to explain one of the theories of, “How did the universe come into existence?”

From Phys.org, Aug. 31: The Dark Energy Camera (DECam) developed and tested at Fermilab continues to make important discoveries. Astronomers have captured galaxy Centaurus A over 12 million light-years away and its size and proximity to Earth make it one of the best-studied giant galaxies in the night sky.

From CNN, July 1, 2021: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln explains how the Hubble Telescope housed on the Space Shuttle Discovery has stopped operating, but the James Webb Space Telescope may soon be replacing it with a hundred times more power.
