Almost everything makes neutrinos — even bananas. But why do bananas produce neutrinos? Are they turning your kitchen into a neutrino factory? Today, we’ll talk about how each of these humble fruits emits more than one million of our favorite particles every day — and some other neutrino sources you might not expect. Join Fermilab scientist Kirsty Duffy to find out!
28th International Workshop on Weak Interactions and Neutrinos First Announcement The goal of the 28th International Workshop on Weak Interactions and Neutrinos (WIN 2021) is to offer to the community a significant opportunity to assess the status of the field and to initiate collaborative efforts to address current physics questions. Following up on previous successful workshops, most recently in Heidelberg (2015), Irvine (2017) and Bari (2019), WIN 2021 will be held Monday June 7, 2021 to Saturday June 12, 2021….
From Jornal Da Unicamp, Feb. 18, 2021: Fermilab’s Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment is the largest study ever done on the subject in the world and will investigate the structure of the matter and provide answers on important issues related to the formation of the universe. DUNE has the participation of researchers from more than 100 countries, with Brazil as one of the signatories.
From Nature, Feb. 17, 2021: Fermilab guest composer David Ibbett writes about his latest piece, Neutrino Music, and how bringing artists and scientists together on the stage can help them to communicate the complex beauty of our world in a language that everyone can understand and appreciate.
From UKRI, Feb. 22, 2021: UKRI scientists are developing vital software to exploit the large data sets collected by the next-generation experiments in high-energy physics. The new software will have the capability to crunch the masses of data that the LHC at CERN and next-generation neutrino experiments, such as the Fermilab-hosted Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, will produce this decade.
A physicist making great advances in particle detector technology, Estrada is recognized by the American Physical Society Division of Particles and Fields for his creation and development of novel applications for CCD technology that probe wide-ranging areas of particle physics, including cosmology, dark matter searches, neutrino detection and quantum imaging.
Engineers and technicians in the UK have started production of key piece of equipment for a major international science experiment. The UK government has invested $89 million in the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. As part of the investment, the UK is delivering a series of vital detector components built at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s Daresbury Laboratory.
