Special Announcement

world_in_a_nutshell

We are expanding the Fermilab Today Result of the Week podcast to include the Fermilab News feature, Physics in a nutshell.

Also, I am personally organizing a year-long photography challenge for people at Fermilab called DIFF, the Daily Image From Fermilab. If you happen to be at Fermilab now, you can find out more at https://diff.fnal.gov. Unfortunately, this URL is invisible off-site.
