(DOE/Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory) A team of scientists using the Dark Energy Camera (DECam), the primary observing tool of the Dark Energy Survey, was among the first to observe the fiery aftermath of a recently detected burst of gravitational waves, recording images of the first confirmed explosion from two colliding neutron stars ever seen by astronomers.
The national laboratory opened usually inaccessible areas of its campus to thousands of visitors to celebrate 50 years of discovery. Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory’s yearlong 50th anniversary celebration culminated on Saturday...Show More Summary
A project called A2D2 will explore new applications for compact linear accelerators. Particle accelerators are the engines of particle physics research at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. They generate nearly light-speed, subatomic particles that scientists study to get to the bottom of what makes our universe tick. Show More Summary
(DOE/Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory) Dark Energy Survey scientists have unveiled the most accurate measurement ever made of the present large-scale structure of the universe. These measurements of the amount and 'clumpiness' (or...Show More Summary
