Eine neue Generation von Superkollidern

In China und der EU haben Physiker Pläne für neue Supercollider angekündigt, die die Größe, Kraft und Geschwindigkeit des Large Hadron Collider am CERN, in den Schatten stellen würden.

Nature Video: The last boson?

Tantalizing glimpses of the Higgs boson have been spotted at CERN. This elusive particle is the last piece of the Standard Model to be confirmed. While at the Lindau meeting, physics Nobel laureates give Nature their views.

Ich war anfangs (z.B. hier) eher skeptisch gegenüber dem Rummel, der sich da rund um die CERN-Entdeckung zu entfalten begann. Das Higgs also – na und? Aber inzwischen haben mich die Kollegen mit ihrer Begeisterung angesteckt. Hier in Lindau saßen wir zwar nicht direkt an der CERN-Quelle, aber hatten trotzdem einzigartige Chancen, eine Vielfalt von […]

Higgs boson and CERN stir up excitement at Lindau

The news that scientists at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN have discovered a new particle consistent with the Higgs boson, which may explain how matter attains its mass, excited and energized the Laureates

Higgs search update: basics and subtleties

I admit to having been skeptical. The Higgs – so what? It’s not like this was unexpected. But the Lindau meeting is a good place to get many different perspectives on the new discovery: watching the CERN press conference, attending Lindau’s own press conference with Carlo Rubbia, David Gross and Martinus Veltman, listening to the […]

The discovery of the Higgs occupies the minds of everyone in Lindau

Today, 4th of July 2012, has been a very long but exciting day. I was here in Lindau, writing my last blog at one o’clock in the morning, when I received an email from a colleague who warned me of a leak from CERN that appeared in the British newspaper The Telegraph, showing an unauthorized […]

Tricking nature to give up its secrets

By their very nature, those discoveries that most change the way we think about nature cannot be anticipated This was Douglas Osheroff’s claim at the start of his lecture on Wednesday morning, where he promised to tell the young researchers at Lindau “how advances in science are made”. In his talk Osheroff offered five things […]

Particle physics Nobel laureates are prepared to receive the Higgs in Lindau

Five minutes before the morning session we see three Nobel laureates – Tini Veltman, Carlo Rubbia and David Gross – moving around eachother next to the stand, preparing their laptops for the presentations, later displayed on the huge screens of Lindau Auditorium. Rubbia seems angry with the others because they are using his Mac connector. […]

Prospects for the Higgs Boson Discovery

Tomorrow physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will make an announcement and while we don’t know exactly what the will announce there is good reason to speculate it will be the discovery of the Higgs boson. The Higgs boson is a particle which mediates the interaction of all matter with the Higgs field […]
