From ZDNet, Feb. 20, 2019: A team at Switzerland-based research center CERN has rebuilt World Wide Web, the world's first browser created in 1990 for its researchers.
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.
The bubble chamber sand mandala
One sprinkle of sand at a time, two artists recreated the moment a particle passed through a detector 30 years earlier.
Fermilab's Liz Sexton-Kennedy talks to Symmetry about her lifelong drive to learn and how it led to her current role as chief information officer for Fermilab. Jim Daley spoke to Sexton-Kennedy about her experiences in STEM, her career at Fermilab and a bit about herself.
Retired equipment lives on in new physics experiments
Physicists often find thrifty, ingenious ways to reuse equipment and resources. What do you do about an 800-ton magnet originally used to discover new particles? Send it off on a months-long journey via truck, train and ship halfway across the world to detect oscillating particles called neutrinos, of course. It's all part of the vast recycling network of the physics community.
Success after a three-year sprint
For several weeks, a prototype detector for the Fermilab-hosted Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment collected data using beams from CERN's particle accelerators. The results show a mature technology exceeding all expectations. It's the culmination of three years of hard work by a global team dedicated to constructing and bringing the new detector online.
Kids of all ages welcome at Fermilab's annual Family Open House on Feb. 10
Fermilab's Family Open House is a chance for the whole family to spend an afternoon learning about science in a hands-on way and have fun doing it. This year's event, running from 1-5 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10, will feature the Great Neutrino Hunt, live physics demonstrations, a memorial to Leon Lederman, and several activities for kids and their parents to enjoy.
DOE Undersecretary for Science Paul Dabbar visits Fermilab to discuss quantum program
On the tour, researchers discussed quantum technologies for communication, high-energy physics experiments, algorithms and theory, and superconducting qubits hosted in superconducting radio-frequency cavities.
In The Media
From Big Picture Science, Feb. 18, 2019: Fermilab scientist Anne Schukraft is interviewed in this podcast episode about ghostly particles called neutrinos — intriguing partly because they came decades before we had the means to prove their existence.
From CNN, Feb. 16, 2019: Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln discusses the Zwicky Transient Facility, a massive sky-survey instrument designed to scan the heavens and look for "transients" or things that brighten unexpectedly. When the instrument sees a change, alerts go out to other astronomers subscribed to the service, who can then use even more powerful telescopes to study the transient event in detail. Even the public can get a daily summary of the previous night's happenings.
From El Comercio, Feb. 18, 2019: Los neutrinos, esas partículas subatómicas, la más pequeñas y abundantes de la naturaleza, podrían ayudar a entender por qué el universo está hecho de materia.
From AAAS, Feb. 16, 2019: The Higgs boson, the once-elusive particle that provides mass to the building blocks of the universe, is the most famous product of the CERN international laboratory, but the lab's bragging rights extend to a host of innovations, said the lab's director-general Fabiola Gianotti.
From The Bogota Post, Feb. 14, 2019: Building change stems from building new role models to get women out of unpaid labor roles and into the country's laboratories and management boards. Role models include on of the scientists on the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.
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.
