Fermilab is the host laboratory for the international DUNE collaboration and the proposed Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility.
Years of work upgrading the accelerator have made it possible to achieve the high beam power needed to produce neutrinos — the most elusive of nature's known particles — by the truckload.
Neutron stars have earned their share of superlatives since their discovery in 1967.
Fermilab's 50th anniversary year has arrived, and though we're happy to toot our own horn, on Jan. 21 Chicago's Mucca Pazza tooted theirs for us.
Fermilab's beginnings can be traced to a 1963 report by a panel of U.S. scientists led by Norman Ramsey.
How can we measure the worth of scientific knowledge? Economic analysts give it a shot.
The awards highlight the key role that the administration places in encouraging and accelerating American innovation to grow our economy and tackle our greatest challenges.
Many visitors to Fermilab reasonably conclude from its name that Enrico Fermi worked at the laboratory, but he never did. He died in 1954, years before scientists recommended the construction of a U.S. accelerator laboratory.
