A series of short physics schools organized in collaboration with CERN has had an outsized impact on the careers of scientists from Latin America.
In the last few decades, Argentina and Chile have proven themselves prime spots for astronomical observation—a status that has been a boon in many ways for both countries.
Many researchers from Latin America can trace their entry into experimental particle physics to an initiative started by former Fermilab Director Leon Lederman.
Brazilian physicist César Lattes, considered a national hero for his discoveries, paved the way for trailblazing research projects in particle astrophysics across Latin America and beyond.
Latin America has reached a pivotal moment in experimental particle physics and astrophysics research. Throughout the month of October, Symmetry will explore how.
When LIGO and Virgo detected the echoes that likely came from a collision between a black hole and a neutron star, dozens of physicists began a hunt for the signal’s electromagnetic counterpart.
Early-career physicist Jonathan LeyVa is helping to build one of the world’s most sensitive dark matter detectors.
Artist Shanthi Chandrasekar explains the mixture of art and physics in her new gallery exhibit at Fermilab.
