May 7, 2012breaking: Fermilab scientists revise plans for construction of new accelerator projectWith their eyes on the tight federal budget, scientists plan to divide Project X, the accelerator project that will power Fermilab's future experiments, into phases in order to lessen the initial costs.
October 1, 2011feature: Solving for XA proposed new accelerator complex at Fermilab would open up the Intensity Frontier of particle physics.
April 12, 2011breaking: Fermilab's Project X could offer potential energy applicationsAccording to the Nuclear Energy Institute, U.S. nuclear power plants have produced roughly 70,000 tons of radioactive waste over the last four decades. By 2025, scientists expect the amount of waste to be roughly 100,000 tons. The nuclear industry faces an ever-increasing waste problem, and Fermilab’s proposed Project X is developing the technologies that may contribute to a solution.
February 1, 2011feature: Global from the get-go?Experiments in particle physics have decades of experience as thoroughly international collaborations. Can the giant accelerators that power these experiments make the leap to go global as well?
August 1, 2009feature: Superconducting technology, Chicago styleFermilab is cooking up a hot technology—and the serving is ultracold. The laboratory is stepping up efforts to develop and test superconducting radio-frequency cavities, a key technology for the next generation of particle accelerators and the future of particle physics.
February 13, 2009breaking: Key to origin of universe could be neutrinos and Project XYou shouldn't be here. Not just reading this blog, but anywhere. You shouldn't exist. Period. But new experiments with a facility called Project X might help explain why you do.
September 1, 2008feature: JLab's new directorHugh Montgomery has taken the helm of the Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in Virginia after almost 25 years at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Illinois. He is JLab's third director, replacing retiring Christoph Leemann.
September 1, 2007feature: Fermilab's path to the futureFermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois has a challenge: how will it maintain its central role as a place where particle accelerators produce groundbreaking discoveries in physics?
