A sourdough family started at Fermilab by a graduate student visiting from Texas A&M has continued to expand and flourish.
Physicists are finding ways to contribute to projects related to epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, supporting healthcare systems, and studying public sentiment.
Physicist Cristiano Galbiati shifted focus from the search for dark matter to the shortage of ventilators for COVID-19 patients. The collaboration he began created an easy-to-manufacture ventilator in less than two months.
Experimentalists and theorists search for Higgs bosons escaping as dark matter.
Fermilab guest composer David Ibbett releases a neutrino-inspired video and commentary.
The Mechanical Ventilator Milano, or MVM, went from concept through approval by the US Food and Drug Administration in a little over a month.
The group Science Responds harnesses physicists’ expertise in fields like data science, statistics and software development to support efforts to respond to COVID-19.
Scientists study rare, one-in-a-trillion heavy boson collisions happening inside the LHC.
Supernova 1987A, the closest supernova observed with modern technology, excited the world more than 30 years ago—and it remains an intriguing subject of study even today.
Amy Catanzano bridges the worlds of poetry and science.
New results from the T2K experiment in Japan rule out with 99.7% confidence nearly half of the possible range of values that could indicate how neutrinos behave compared to their antimatter counterparts.
In an imaginative short film, Symmetry writer Sarah Charley investigates the physics of vegetables.
The ADMX experiment trains scientists to deal with real signals—by creating fake ones.
How do you measure a decade of LHC research?
Only 1% of the mass of the proton comes from the Higgs field. ALICE scientists examine a process that could help explain the rest.
Only a fraction of collision events that look like they produce a Higgs boson actually produce a Higgs boson. Luckily, it doesn’t matter.
