From CNN, June 17, 2021: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln discusses the much anticipated Pentagon report expected later this month, detailing what the US military knows about UFOs.
From Kathimerini (Greece), June 14, 2021: A multinational team of 400 researchers from 25 research centers in seven countries announced the results of the DES study that looked at 226 million galaxies and thousands of supernova explosions. The DES measurements, like those of other similar galactic surveys, informed us that the current universe is less dense than our model predicts.
From Yahoo, May 30, 2021: Scientists from the Dark Energy Survey collaboration have just released the best dark matter map yet, but it’s not answering every question — if anything, the cosmos may be more mysterious than ever.
From Cosmos, May 29, 2021: The Dark Energy Survey collaboration released the most precise look at the universe’s evolution to understand dark matter and dark energy by studying how they shape the large-scale structure of the universe.
From the University of Chicago News, June 3, 2021: University of Chicago Professor Dan Hooper, who worked on the muon g-2 experiment, discusses how the g-2 result challenges “standard model” and open a whole new kind of physics.
From CNN, June 3, 2021: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln covers the capabilities of the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument, or DESI, in mapping the structure of the entire cosmos.
From The Florida News Times, May 28, 2021: A highly accurate analysis of the DES data from the first three years of the study, show hints from previous DES data and other important experiments in the universe today are a few percent less than expected. The Dark Energy Survey Camera (DECam) used in the survey was specially designed for the Dark Energy Survey, and was funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) and built and tested at DOE’s Fermilab.
From Quo (Spain), May 23, 2021: An interview with Pilar Hernández Gamazo to find out the scope of the muon case that will transform our understanding of the Universe. Pilar Hernández is a professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Valencia.
From the University of Chicago, May 21, 2021: Long-time University of Chicago professor of astronomy and astrophysics, Richard Kron created the Sloan Digital Sky Survey which set the stage for the Dark Energy Survey. Although he is retiring this year after 40 years of mapping the universe, he plans on staying on as director of the Dark Energy Survey.
From Forbes, May 14, 2021: Fermilab senior scientist Don Lincoln discusses measuring the size of neutron stars and the result of a measurement showing that the centers of neutron stars are stiff and not squishy.
