The MiniBooNE neutrino oscillation search experiment at Fermilab has recently reported results from a search for $bar{nu}_{mu}->bar{nu}_e$ oscillations, using a data sample corresponding to $5.66 times 10^{20}$ protons on target in anti-neutrino mode. The experiment is now sensitive to the excess of $bar{nu}_{mu}->bar{nu}_e$ events observed by Los Alamos Liquid Scintillator Neutrino Detector (LSND). The data are consistent with $bar{nu}_{mu}->bar{nu}_e$ oscillations in the $Delta m^2$ range of 0.1 to 1.0 $eV^2$ and with the evidence for antineutrino oscillations from LSND. In this presentation the speaker will discuss the MiniBooNE data, as well as its interpretation and implications.
