From University of Chicago News, October 3, 2022: An international group of physicists is meeting to lay out a vision for the next decades of particle physics. Fermilab’s Marcela Carena, who is a member of the committee, will participate in this study, which will help guide federal agencies, policymakers and academics as they make decisions about research, funding and planning. The study is expected to be released in 2024.
From Hip Latina, September 27, 2021: Fermilab’s Jessica Esquivel was featured in Hip Latina to celebrate the achievements and contributions of Latinx people in America and highlight incredible individuals doing amazing work in STEM!
From Columbia News, September 8, 2021: A Q&A with physicist Georgia Karagiorgi explaining her fascination with neutrinos and particle physics and what she hopes to learn at the Fermilab.
From Next Gov, July 26, 2021: Did you know Illinois Rep. Bill Foster is the only PhD physicist in Congress? Recently, he proposed additional funding for the Restore and Modernize Our National Laboratories Act of 2021. He worked at Fermilab for over two decades and said, “the labs have led the way not only in developing breakthrough technologies—but also in commercializing them.”
From IFL Science (United Kingdom), July 5, 2021: In the late 1960’s, Fermilab’s Felicia the ferret helped trouble shoot why the newly completed particle accelerator would not start. Thanks to the innovative thinking of a laboratory worker from Oxford, UK, he sourced Felicia to help identify the accelerator’s stall.
