From the CERN Courier, November 7, 2022: Fermilab’s Joel Butler and a group of scientists describe the recent ‘Snowmass’ community planning exercise in Seattle, Washington which reveal the great opportunities present in high-energy physics in the coming decades.
From the Department of Energy Office of Science, July 13, 2022: DOE announced $78 million in funding for 58 research projects that will spur new discoveries in high energy physics. The announcement covers a wide range of topics at the frontiers of particle physics, including Fermilab’s Muon g-2 and the MicroBooNE experiments.
From the BBC, April 7, 2022: Scientists of the CDF collaboration have found a tiny difference in the mass of the W Boson compared with what the theory says it should be – just 0.1%. If confirmed by other experiments, the implications could be enormous and could challenge the Standard Model of particle physics.
From Live Science, March 14, 2022: Fermilab’s Alan Bross is leading a team planning to scan the Great Pyramid of Giza, the largest pyramid ever constructed in ancient Egypt. The team will use powerful scans to analyze muons in greater detail aiming to answer the question of what exists in two mysterious voids in the pyramid.
From DOE.gov, August 2, 2021: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a plan to provide $100 million over the next four years for new research in high energy physics. Funding will support research and experiments that explore the frontiers of high energy physics. This includes Fermilab’s Muon g-2 experiment which aims to search for signs of physics beyond the standard model, scientists’ current best theory to describe the most basic building blocks of the universe.
