Fermilab Now

World Year of Physics at Fermilab


Quantum Diaries
Quantum Diaries follows the lives of scientists from around the world as they live the World Year of Physics. In their own words, in photos, blogs, and videos, they tell the real-life stories of real physicists in real time. Fermilab physicists Tommaso Dorigo, Debbie Harris, Gordon Watts and Jochen Weller are all participants in this interactive World Year of Physics project.
