Fermilab-related experiments among top science stories
Fermilab's doubly-strange particle, the Tevatron and the LHC were among the top science stories of 2008.
Results from Fermilab-related experiments made a lasting impression on the scientific community in 2008. The American Institute of Physics named two projects involving the laboratory among the publication's top 10 scientific stories of the year.
The discovery by physicists from the DZero collaboration of a "doubly strange" particle, a new particle made of three quarks, the Omega-sub-b, made the list.
Science named the LHC as it's phenomenon of the year. The magazine also named the Tevatron and NASA-DOE's Fermi Gamma Ray Telescope (formerly GLAST) among the magazine's top areas to watch in 2009.
An article about the omega-sub-b particle discovery made science news of the year in the category of matter and energy in the publication Science News.
The LHC Grid was named second of 50 most-read stories by The Times, in the publication's online version.
Nature included the LHC among its news of the year, and profiled Lyn Evans, LHC project leader, as the publication's Newsmaker of the Year.
