New DOE Counterintelligence Display Featured on WH6E
Counterintelligence display
The counterintelligence display on the sixth floor of Wilson Hall
Recent security issues at other DOE labs and an increase in the national terrorist threat level serve to remind us of the importance of the government's intelligence and counterintelligence efforts. To further Fermilab employees and visitors' awareness and understanding of DOE's counterintelligence work, a display is present, through January, in the DOE Fermi Area Office (WH6E). In addition to the display there are handouts available covering the topics of: "Espionage and Foreign Travel"; "Elicitation, More than Just a Conversation..."; "The Economic Espionage Act of 1996"; "A Pocket Guide to Counterintelligence"; "2003 Technology Collection Trends in the U.S. Defense Industry." If, as a result of seeing the display and reviewing the handouts, you should have any questions please contact Bruce Chrisman, Fermilab's counterintelligence contact person.

Subatomic Tracking Finds Clues to the Unseen Universe
By James Glanz
An experiment that tracks subtle motions of subatomic particles called muons has found tantalizing evidence for a vast shadow universe of normally unseen matter existing side by side with ours, scientists at the Brookhaven National Laboratory said yesterday.

The significance of the findings has been thrown into doubt by a series of mathematical errors and theoretical disagreements by physicists around the world who have been weighing the evidence for what would, if correct, rank as one of the greatest discoveries in science.

10 things we'll know by this time next year
By Alok Jha
How much a neutrino weighs
Deep inside an abandoned iron mine in northern Minnesota, a 6,000 tonne detector sits waiting to unlock one of the biggest mysteries in the universe. The detector is one of two that will be built for the Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search (Minos) - the latest study of neutrinos by the physicists at Fermilab in the US.

Bicyclists in front of Wilson Hall
Change in Security Level
On Friday, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security lowered the national threat level from High to an Elevated risk of terrorist attack - or from Code Orange to Code Yellow. The Department of Energy has requested that Fermilab change its security measures accordingly, from SECON 2 to modified SECON 3. Pedestrians and bicyclists may once again enter the site without a visitor's pass. All Fermilab buildings remain closed to the public, except for the Leon Lederman Science Education Center. The public may not drive on site without obtaining a visitor's pass.
