The Fermilab Natural Areas organization, formed in 2006, is a nonprofit, all-volunteer network dedicated to restoring, managing and enhancing the natural areas and resources of Fermilab in order to maintain and improve their ecological health and biodiversity.
The talk is part of the APS Division of Particles and Fields meeting at Fermilab and will be streamed live.
In the meantime, the Daya Bay collaboration has teamed up with another Fermilab experiment, the Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search, to continue to seek signs of sterile neutrinos.
The results of the experiment could create new discoveries in the realm of particle physics, said Chris Polly, manager of the Muon g-2 project at Fermilab.
The Fermilab team called upon FEA software to evaluate where each subsystem stood with regard to the alignment budget, said Ingrid Fang, a Fermilab mechanical engineer assigned to the project.
With Caltech and Fermilab each in possession of a set of code numbers, the Space Station could send another series of numbers (even over an open channel) to both Caltech and Fermilab, and the physicists at both locations could combine those numbers with their code keys to compute another key for secure communication between those two labs.

The Alliance is a new corporation that was formed in response to the DOE's competition to manage Fermilab and is dedicated solely to the laboratory's management.
However at a recent conference at Fermilab [1], the consensus among researchers in the field is that these experiments will not really be able to produce realistic tests of the Standard Model because the Standard Model, using conventional perturbation techniques, is far from being able to produce predictions of sufficient accuracy for these effects.
