Abstract: Fermilab is pushing forward on three interrelated frontiers: the Energy Frontier, the Intensity Frontier, and the Cosmic Frontier. Each has a unique approach to making discoveries, and all three are essential to answering the central questions in particle physics. In this talk, I will trace out the path from where we are at Fermilab and what we plan to do to take the next steps at the three frontiers. The central piece of the plan is an intensity-frontier linear accelerator, Project X. Project X's intense beams would give Fermilab's scientific users an excellent way into the world of neutrinos, rare processes, and precision physics. With its ILC technology, Project X would spur U.S. industrialization of ILC components and would drive forward the technology for still higher-energy accelerators of the future, such as a muon collider.
