Neutrinos are a mystery to physicists. They exist in three different flavors and mass states and may be able to give hints about the origins of the matter-dominated universe. A new long-baseline experiment led by Fermilab called NOvA may provide some answers.

Six days. Three frontiers. One amazing lab. From 2010 to 2012, a film crew followed a group of scientists at the Department of Energy’s Fermilab and filmed them at work and at home. This 40-minute documentary shows the diversity of the people, research and work at Fermilab. Viewers catch a true behind-the-scenes look of the United States’ premier particle physics laboratory while scientists explain why their research is important to them and the world.
What is a Higgs Boson?
An international group of scientists are designing an accelerator-driven system that could produce energy and recycle nuclear waste. Fermilab recently hosted physicists and engineers from around the world at a workshop on the applications of high-intensity proton accelerators to consider this idea and others. In this video, three attendees from Fermilab’s workshop discuss accelerator-driven systems.
