From Gizmodo, Sept. 11, 2018: The Large Hadron Collider started up in 2008, and in 2012, LHC scientists announced the discovery of the Higgs boson. Here's what else is happening at the famous collider. Recent CMS spokesperson and Fermilab scientist Joel Butler comments.
What we do
Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment
Fermilab hosts DUNE and the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility, being built by scientists and engineers from more than 30 countries.
Fermilab explores the universe at the smallest and largest scales, studying the fundamental particles and forces that govern our universe.
Accelerator science and technology
Fermilab designs, builds and operates powerful accelerators to investigate nature's building blocks, advancing technology for science and society.
Department of Energy awards Fermilab more than $10 million for quantum science
Through its Quantum Information Science-Enabled Discovery program, DOE is awarding Fermilab researchers funding for five quantum-science initiatives. It also funds Fermilab's participation in three further initiatives led by other institutions.
Department of Energy announces $218 million for quantum information science
Quantum science is expected to lay the foundation for the next generation of computing and information processing as well as an array of other innovative technologies.

From STFC, Sept. 18, 2018: The enormous ProtoDUNE detector is the largest liquid-argon neutrino detector in the world. The size of a three-story house and the shape of a gigantic cube it has just recorded its first particle tracks signaling the start of a new chapter in the story of the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.
From Crain's Chicago Business, Sept. 20, 2018: University of Chicago Professor David Awschalom says that accelerating quantum research is critical for Chicago, which is uniquely positioned to help lead the nation, thanks to the University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory and Fermilab. The decisions we make now will determine the role the U.S. plays in a technology that could deliver a generational leap forward if we are bold enough to seize the opportunity.
From Swiss Info, Sept. 18, 2018: L'immense détecteur de ProtoDUNE, un cube de la taille d'une maison de trois étages, a été construit au CERN.
From Science, Sept. 13, 2018: At a recent workshop at Fermilab, more than 100 physicists gathered to hone the conceptual tools needed for the long search for collisions that produce not just one Higgs boson, but two. Fermilab scientists Marcela Carena and Caterina Vernieri, as well as others on CMS and ATLAS, comment on the plan.
From Forbes, Sept. 8 2018: What will measurements of the constant 'g' — the 'g' in Muon g-2 — tell us about the universe?
Inside the international hunt for the ghost particle
The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment wants to solve one of the biggest mysteries in science today, namely, why do we exist? Fermilab scientist Bonnie Fleming appears in this 6-minute explainer video.
