Get tickets!

Description

The Tevatron accelerator is an astounding 3.9 miles across with particles colliding at almost two trillion electron volts. Fermilab scientists are using this behemoth to unlock the secrets of asymmetric distribution of matter and antimatter in our observable universe.


The lab also houses artistic takes on a variety of mathematical concepts, including a geodesic dome and a double helix staircase. Oddly enough, there are even a herd of bison that live on the grounds as a way to preserve Illinois' environmental heritage.


OBSCURA DAY TICKETS TO FERMILAB ARE SOLD OUT - HOWEVER, DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND WE HAVE ADDED A SECOND OVERFLOW DATE ON SATURDAY, MAY 19 - TICKET INFORMATION IS BELOW.
