A Decade of Discovery Past . . .( from C. Quigg)
Electroweak theory → law of nature [Z, e+e−, pp, νN, (g − 2)µ, . . . ]
Higgs-boson influence observed in the vacuum [EW experiments]
Neutrino flavor oscillations: νµ → ντ , νe → νµ/ντ [ν, νatm]
Understanding QCD [heavy flavor, Z0, pp, νN, ep, lattice]
Discovery of top quark [pp]
Direct CP violation in K → ππ decay [fixed-target]
B-meson decays violate CP [e+e− → B B ]
Flat universe dominated by dark matter & energy [SN Ia, CMB, LSS]
Detection of ντ interactions [fixed-target]
Quarks & leptons structureless at TeV scale [mainly colliders]
We learned in the last decade that we know very little about 95% of the universe. Facilities and tools are within our grasp in the next decade to start cracking this mystery!
Dmitri Litvintsev’s (CD RA, CDF) work. First Observation of this charm-strange baryons at a proton collider.
D0 March 16th event, enormous amount of missing energy.
Lattice-QCD Models the inside of protons and neutrons.

“Her sneakers squeaked as she walked down the halls where Lederman had walked. The 7th floor of the high-risewas where she did her work, and she found her way to the small, functional desk in the back of the pen.”
