Former Fermilab employee Mike Hrycyk died on Nov. 14, 2021. He worked at Fermilab from 1975 to 2013, playing a central role in the design and construction of the first silicon detector for hadron colliders.

Whether he is on the side of a mountain or working at the Fermilab Quantum Institute, Cristián Peña likes to explore the unknown and tackle new challenges. Although he spends most of his time working on quantum communication systems for FQI, Peña dedicates time to work on the CMS experiment. His work between the two experiments, while different in practice, are conceptually similar.
