Fermilab in Batavia is continuing its "Summer Science Series" at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 28.

The online lecture series covers a variety of science topics followed by a question-and-answer session with the presenter and Fermilab staff.


Attend a free online lecture and ask the experts your questions!

These programs are designed for adults and students with a keen interest in science!

On June 14, Jim Welsh, Loyola Medical Center and Hines VA Hospital, talked about "The Sky's the Limit: Radiation Hazards of Space Travel."

At 1 p.m. Sunday, June 28, Adam Anderson of Fermilab will explore "Looking Back in Time: Cosmology at the Beginning of the World."

Dr. Anderson is a Leon Lederman Fellow at the Fermilab Center for Particle Astrophysics and a co-director of the Fermilab Saturday Morning Physics team.

In 2015, he received his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, working with Tali Figueroa on the SuperCDMS, a direct dark matter detection experiment located deep underground in the Soudan Mine in northern Minnesota. His interests include the physics of the cosmic microwave background, the search for dark matter in the universe, instrumentation for low-temperature detectors, and novel experimental probes of the electroweak sector. His work takes him to the South Pole to work on the telescope from time to time.

These programs are offered online via Zoom. To register, visit ed.fnal.gov/events/summerscienceseries/.

The series is supported by the Fermilab Office of Education and Public Outreach. For questions, contact the Education Office at edreg@fnal.gov.
