Lindau-Bilanz 2012

Die Lindauer Tagung 2012 ist nun bereits zwei Wochen her. Zeit für meinen Rückblick: Wie war’s? Von den Vorträgen her war durchaus ein gewisses Crescendo zu bemerken. Begonnen hatte es mit einem soliden und schönen, aber eben eher konventionellen Vortrag zur Dunklen Energie von “Frischling” Brian Schmidt. Rumoren, aber auch Stirnrunzeln, gab dann in der […]

Heather Gray: chaotic starts and Higgs excitement

Heather Gray, a researcher working on the ATLAS experiment at CERN, was at this year’s Lindau meeting. I spoke to her over email before it started to find out about her expectations, and afterwards she told me about her impressions of the meeting and what it was like to watch the announcement from CERN with other […]

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 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 […]
