CERN/NASA Summit: “Accelerating the Adoption of Open Science”
Following the installation of kicker magnets that are more heat resistant and their successful tests during the SPS scrubbing run, the SPS is getting ready for High-Luminosity LHC operation.
Time to change: CERN scientists propose 25-hour day
Scientists at the BETA experiment, in CERN’s Antimatter Factory, have made the most precise measurement of the second yet, which could result in the day lasting an hour longer
ALICE sees “the ridge” in simplest collisions yet
The observation brings physicists a step closer to finding the origin of collective phenomena in small collision systems
Where does the Higgs boson come from?
The observed mass of the Higgs boson is, from the theoretical point of view, unnaturally small. This conundrum is forcing physicists to explore exotic explanations.
A spring awakening: CERN’s accelerators gear up for 2023
