The buzz news for today is the announcement that Pier Oddone will retire next year as Fermilab Director. Here's the press release out of Fermilab.
I would say that his tenure as Lab Director saw one of the most, if not THE most challenging times for Fermilab. Severe budget cuts caused a lot of layoffs, and now with the demise of the Tevatron, the lab is looking to reestablish its identity and its big projects to continue surviving.
The new lab director will have a lot of challenges to face.
