Chicago wins contract to manage Fermilab

Click here for the news article.

The University of Chicago is the only single university to manage two national laboratories, Argonne and Fermilab. The other is the University of California system. Fermilab is also looking like a good spot to put the International Linnear Collider, and its management is trying their hardest to bring the ILC to Illinois. Two of six quarks were discovered there, as well as one of the three neutrinos. Hooray for particle physics!

Update: An article in the Trib on both labs
