  • America’s particle physics and accelerator laboratory
  • Mission: Solving the mysteries of energy, matter, space, and time.
  • Fermilab hosts DUNE and the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility, being built by scientists and engineers from more than 30 countries.
  • Fermilab explores the universe at the smallest and largest scales, studying the fundamental forces and particles that control our universe
  • Fermilab builds, designs, and operates powerful accelerators to investigate natures building blocks, advancing technology for science and society

9/16/20 WISRD Article Topic and study focus for next few months: What can Neutrinos Tell us? Why would anybody be studying Neutrinos? – Fermilab History. Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. Neutrino Catastrophe Cern. More Matter than anti matter (right hand over left hand) Solar Neutrino Problem.

9/11/20 COSMIC RAY ARRAY GROUP ELEVATOR ACTIVITY: We are the Cosmic Ray Array Group. Our Goal is to build an array of cosmic ray detectors across SOCAL. Previously, our group participated in a rocket launch for NASA. Our Cosmic Ray Detector was launched in the payload of the rocket. We used the data to test the question, can a cosmic ray detector withstand flight? Our array is important because the data that we collect will contribute to the world of space and science.

9/3/20 TWEET: Update: Not to worry! COVID-19 has not stopped the fast paced cosmic ray array group! Prior to the pandemic, the Cosmic Ray Array Group launched a rocket for the NASA Student Initiative! Currently, the Cosmic Ray Array Group is preparing to build an array of detectors to be placed across Southern California! More updates to come soon. Stay tuned. And that’s all from the Cosmic Ray News.
The Cosmic Ray Array group is also in the research phase of working with the Radio Telescope group in measuring and comparing the data of a cosmic ray shower and a radio wave.
