OSTI features Nobel Prize winner Leon Lederman

Read about this second son of Russian-Jewish parents who, along with his research partners, won the 1988 Nobel Prize in physics for "transforming the ghostly neutrino into an active tool of research." The OSTI-developed and -managed Web site, DOE R&D Accomplishments, has posted a feature highlighting Leon Lederman, who proposed the idea that eventually became the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois. In addition to the Lederman feature, explore two additions to the Snapshots page: Argonne Licenses Anti-Jet-Lag-Diet Software to Online Company and Discoveries at Fermilab. DOE R&D Accomplishments is a central forum for information about the outcomes of past DOE research and development.
