Using Newtonian physics, physicists have found an expression for the value of kinetic energy, specifically KE = ½ m v^2. Einstein came up with a very different expression, specifically KE = (gamma – 1) m c^2. In this video, Don Lincoln shows how these two equations are the same at low energy and how you get from one to the other.
From Physics World, February 3, 2022: Fermilab’s Wilson Hall was included and discussed in this episode of Physics World Weekly podcast about what makes a good physics building. At 17:25, Wilson Hall is described as one of the most beautiful buildings in physics and was very modern for 1960’s architecture when cement was so prevalently used in building construction.
From Science News, December 21,2021: Science News has compiled discoveries in 2021 dared the world to consider grand possibilities in physics, space and the origins of life. Fermilab’s “Misbehaving muons” is among the line-up for 2021.
From Stony Brook University, December 1, 2021: Chang Kee Jung, founding member of the DUNE collaboration, is recipient of the 2022 Julius Edgar Lilienfeld Prize by the American Physical Society. Professor Jung is being recognized for his outstanding contributions and leadership in experimental neutrino physics and outstanding teaching and outreach, especially in the physics of sports.
From Popular Science, November 24, 2021: The Popular Science writing staff compiled short stories of fun and interesting science stories they have covered. Included in this quirky series is the story of how Felicia the ferret helped clean accelerator tubes at Fermilab and the 2006 raccoon invasion in the Linac gallery.
