From Duke Today, July 17, 2019: Teams behind the 1995 discovery are recognized for first observations of tiny but hefty particle at the heart of matter.
From Live Science, Feb. 5, 2019: This article dives deep into the little teensy tiny particles that are fundamental building blocks of matter. As far as scientists can tell, quarks themselves are not made of anything smaller. That may change in the future as we learn more, but it’s good enough for now.
From Listverse, Feb. 5, 2019: This listicle mentions Fermilab scientist Melissa Franklin as part of the Fermilab team that discovered the top quark.
From Scientific American, June 6, 2018: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln explains the significance of scientists’ first observation of the famous Higgs boson, responsible for imparting mass, interacting with the heaviest particle in the universe.
From UPI, June 4, 2018: Fermilab Deputy Director Joe Lykken says that “deeply understanding how the Higgs interacts with known particles could help lead us to physics beyond the Standard Model.”
From Live Science, June 4, 2018: Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln writes about two new results on how scientists found the Higgs boson popping up along with the heaviest particle ever discovered. The results could help us better understand one of the most fundamental problems in physics — why matter has mass.
From Live Science, June 4, 2018: The Higgs boson appeared again at the world’s largest atom smasher — this time, alongside a top quark and an antitop quark, the heaviest known fundamental particles.
From NOVA NEXT, June 4, 2018: The CMS and ATLAS collaborations report a substantial new advance in the understanding of the Higgs boson, the particle that is responsible for giving mass to fundamental subatomic particles.
From CNN, June 4, 2018: Scientists from the CMS and ATLAS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider have observed the most massive known fundamental subatomic particle directly interacting with an energy field that gives mass to the building blocks of the universe.
