From the US Department of Energy, October 29, 2021: The US DOE announced $6 million for collaborative research in high energy physics that involves substantial collaboration with Japanese investigators. Research supported under this initiative is expected to include experimental work at DOE’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) in Japan, as well as the study of rare particles produced at the SuperKEKB collider at the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) in Japan.

From Medill Reports, September 30, 2021: Researchers transported a gigantic electromagnetic ring from Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island to Fermilab near Chicago eight years ago in the search for a new building block of matter. While it wasn’t the secret spaceship bystanders thought it was, it did allow scientists to explore fundamental questions about our universe.

From WORT 89.9 FM-Madison WI, Aug. 26, 2021: General Counsel for Fermilab, John Myer, talks with 89.9 FM hosts, Ankur Malhotra and Austin Exum, about the major projects and practical applications of the research performed at Fermilab.

From the DOE Office of Science, June 28, 2021: Particle physics research scientists supported by the U.S. Department of Energy tackle the fundamental mysteries at universities and national labs across the country. They build state-of-the-art experiments that yield incredible discoveries and achievements including Fermilab’s Muon g-2 result, the Higgs Boson discovery, the ProtoDune demonstration and the launch of the National Quantum Initiative.
