Today some people spread a rumour that the future of Fermilab is uncertain. So
I did a bit of research in the Congressional Budget for 2006 and found the following
"In FY 2009, at the end of Tevatron Run II, Fermilab will still be operating NuMI/MINOS for at least another year, and will participate in LHC and various particle astrophysics programs. The future of Fermilab past the end of the decade will be the subject of a continuing dialogue between the Administration, Congress, the laboratory, and the broader U.S. and international particle physics communities."
You can find this in this document on page 275,
Clearly this statement is not too positive but not really negative either or is it. Of course you can imagine that it created quite a bit of uproar in the facility. On top of it they propose to shut down BTeV (see in the same document). Well it has to pass congress and I am just here for a year and have no experience in these things. But if this turns out to be true and so negative as it sounds this is very sad.
