(Fermilab)Places World's First Particle Research

Fermilab National Accelerator Laboratory was originally called, was commissioned by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission in the bill signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson on November 21, 1967. Fermilab is located in Illinois, United States. Founding Director Robert R. laboratory Wilson, committed to applying the basic principles of the company namely, scientific excellence, esthetic beauty, land management, fiscal responsibility and equality of opportunity. Universities Research Association built the laboratory and Fermilab has been operated since its establishment. On May 11, 1974, the laboratory was renamed in honor of 1938 Nobel Prize winner Enrico Fermi, one of the leading physicists in the atomic age.

Two main standard component model that is very fundamental particles have been discovered at Fermilab. ie The Bottom Quark (May-June 1977) and The Top Quark (February 1995). In July 2000, the researcher Fermilab announced the first direct observation of Tau Neutrino (last elementary particles observed). Filling the final slot in the Standard Model, Tau Neutrino is set as a new discovery in the world of physics with the inauguration of Collider Run II Tevatron in March 2001. The Tevatron, four miles in diameter Circle was originally called the Energy Doubler when it began operating in 1983, and is the highest energy particle accelerator in the world. 1000 superconducting magnets cooled with liquid helium at -268 C (-450 F). its low temperature cooling system is the largest ever built when it operated in 1983. Fermilab has added two-mile Main Injector accelerator to increase the number of collisions of protons and antiprotons at the Tevatron, it is possible to be able to find important discoveries in Run II. Fermilab approximately 6.800 m wide, and originally an agricultural land and is in the village of Weston. Some of the original barns are still used by the laboratory, in use for a variety of functions ranging from social activities, religious etc. 

 (Research Lab From Inside) 
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, aims to advance understanding about the basic nature of matter and energy by providing facilities and resources for qualified researchers to conduct basic research in the field of energy physics and related fields. Currently, approximately 2,300 scientists from 34 states and 28 countries, scientists came from: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Czech Republic, Ecuador, France, Germany, Greece, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Republic of China, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom, the United States and Vietnam.
