Some theorists speculate that dark matter particles could belong to a “hidden sector” and that there may be portals to this hidden sector from the Standard Model. The portals allow hidden-sector particles to trickle into Standard Model interactions. A large sensitive particle detector, placed in an intense particle beam and equipped with a mechanism to suppress the Standard Model interactions, could unveil these new particles.
If you have ever tried to watch a movie or listen to music on a plane, then you know the problem well: The roar of the engines makes it difficult to hear what’s being piped through the speakers — even when those speakers are situated in or on your ear.
In a similar manner, at the MicroBooNE detector we identify and filter out several excess noise sources.

This is a meta podcast – I talk about the podcast itself. The bottom line: I really don’t want to do this podcast unless I can confirm that people, real human beings, are listening.

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.
