NOvA Exploring Neutrino Mysteries

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.

Science at Work – Fermilab

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

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.

Fueling the Future

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

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.
