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.
From Vox, May 12, 2021: Fermilab’s Jessica Esquivel explains the results of a new experiment out of Fermilab – involving a subatomic particle wobbling weirdly – could pave the way to new ways of understanding our universe.
From Forbes, Feb. 25, 2021: Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln writes about a supercomputer at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan that explores the history of the universe by simulating over 4,000 universes.
