Future of Particle Physics and Fermilab

If you are in the neighborhood on May 27, here's a public lecture by the Director of Fermilab Pier Oddone that you might be interested in (or you might not).

Fermilab is the only U.S. national laboratory dedicated to particle physics. What does the start up of the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland mean for Fermilab? What discoveries does Fermilab hope to make? Fermilab Director Pier Oddone will address these and other questions about Fermilab's future.

The end-date for the Tevatron seems to get pushed back repeatedly here with the unexpected delay in the LHC operations. We'll see how that will pan out when the LHC restarts and how quickly results will appear out of it. In the meantime, the Tevatron continues to hunt for any possible hint of the Higgs.....
