Nature Lindau video: Is dark matter real?

The morning after CERN announces the discovery of the Higgs particle, three young physicists sit down with Nobel prizewinners George Smoot and Martinus Veltman to digest the news.

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 […]

Rubbia seems angry with the others because they are using his Mac connector. […]

Martinus Veltman, das Higgs-Boson und die Grenzen der Experimente

Was ich über das Standardmodell der Teilchenphysik weiß, verdanke ich vor allem einem Buch – dem sehr empfehlenswerten “Facts and Mysteries in Elementary Particle Physics” des Physik-Nobelpreisträgers Martinus Veltman. Nun, ein paar Jahre später, scheint mit dem Higgs-Boson der Schlussstein des Standardmodells zum greifen nahe, und für mich gibt es zu dieser Gelegenheit keinen besseren […]

Why are Nobel Prizes important?

There is no other prize in the intellectual realm with the prestige of the Nobel Prizes. They also have a visibility that can hardly be compared to any other. But why are they important? What do they contribute to society? In an age in which we are gradually losing whole sets of values​​, fundamentally humanistic […]

CERN, Dark Energy, and Dark Matter

When you throw together six distinguished physicists (David Gross, John Mather, Carlo Rubbia, George Smoot, Gerardus ’t Hooft, and Martinus Veltman) into debate on what CERN will teach us about the dark energy and dark matter you can’t guarantee the same kind harmony that these physicists strive for in their own theories. There was a majority agreement […]
