Scientists Spot Explosive Counterpart of LIGO/Virgo’s Latest Gravitational Waves

DECamNeutronStarthumb.jpg

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.

Dark Energy Survey Reveals Most Accurate Measurement of Dark Matter Structure in the Universe

DESyearonemassmapfull.jpeg

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 distribution) of dark matter in the present-day cosmos were made with a precision that, for the first time, rivals that of inferences from the early universe by the European Space Agency’s orbiting Planck observatory

Construction Begins on International Mega-Science Experiment to Understand Neutrinos

LBNF_Groundbreaking_Sanford.jpeg

In a unique groundbreaking ceremony held this afternoon at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota, a group of dignitaries, scientists and engineers from around the world marked the start of construction of a massive international experiment that could change our understanding of the universe. The Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF) will house the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), which will be built and operated by a group of roughly 1,000 scientists and engineers from 30 countries.

On June 21, a prototype detector for the massive Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment recorded its first particle tracks. This was the largest ever test of an extremely precise method for measuring neutrinos, which may hold the key to why our universe looks the way it does and how it came into being.

Muon Magnet's Moment Has Arrived

Muon20172.jpg

On May 31, the 50-foot-wide superconducting electromagnet at the center of the Muon g-2 experiment saw its first beam of muon particles from Fermilab’s accelerators, kicking off a three-year effort to measure just what happens to those particles when placed in a stunningly precise magnetic field. The answer could rewrite scientists’ picture of the universe and how it works.
