It's the most magical time of year - baby bison time! The first two Fermilab calves of 2018 were born this morning! 
If you're near Fermilab, you can come visit and see them in person. Between 10 and 14 calves are expected this #spring.

Happy #NationalPetDay! Our bison aren't domesticated, but they are certainly part of the Fermilab family.

Farewell winter, hello spring! One last image of the season we leave behind: a wintry dusting on the Bubble Chamber taken in January by @leticiashaddix.

This accelerator was photographed at the Cryomodule Test Facility late last year. Fermilab is working on upgrades to make our accelerator complex even more powerful for upcoming projects like the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.

Observers on the Dark Energy Survey spotted the most distant confirmed supernova ever seen! The Dark Energy Camera was built at Fermilab and now sits atop the Blanco Telescope in Chile.

Yesterday we sent off the first of many cryomodules to @slac_lab. There, it will be incorporated (along with its siblings) into LCLS-II, a revolutionary X-ray laser.
Fermilab scientist Alex Romanenko took us behind the scenes at the new quantum lab at the Industrial Center Building to show us superconducting cavities and a dilution refrigerator.

Today Fermilab welcomed @energy's @secretaryperry and @repbillfoster. They couldn't resist the pull of the Muon g-2 magnet. They also saw neutrino experiments, accelerator technology, quantum computing technology, bison, and much more.
