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.
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 CNN, October 6, 2021: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln describes the important work of the three 2021 Nobel Prize recipients in physics being honored for developing methods to understand complicated physical systems.
From CNN, August 2, 2021: Don Lincoln describes the mastery of physics Olympic athletes have as demonstrated by their physical feats. Read more about how Olympic athletes apply the principles of physics and use amazing amounts of energy, skill and precision to run, throw a discus, balance on the balance beam or launch the javelin.
From Northern Public Radio, April 20, 2021: Fermilab’s Rebecca Thompson, Head of the Office of Education and Public Outreach, talks on this segment about STEM and its impact on our society.
From Northwest Quarterly, Oct. 10, 2016: Our universe is a mystery. We don’t know what most of it is made of; we don’t know how it all works. But by using the largest, most complex machines in the world, scientists at Fermilab are figuring it out.
