CERN turns 60 and celebrates peaceful collaboration for science

Today, CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is blowing out 60 candles at an event attended by official delegations from 35 countries. Founded in 1954, CERN is today the largest particle physics laboratory in the world and a prime example of international collaboration, bringing together scientists of almost 100 nationalities.

Cern considers building huge physics machine

The possibility of building an underground "atom-smasher" four times the size of the Large Hadron Collider is to be explored by experts.
The decision follows a high level meeting of scientists this week in Geneva, near the European particle physics centre, Cern.
The proposal is for a 100-km tunnel which would encircle the Swiss city.

European particle physics refreshes long-term strategy

Some 500 particle physicists meeting in Krakow this week have been debating the long-term future of their field at the CERN Council Open Symposium on the European Strategy for Particle Physics. This symposium comes at a turning point for the field, following hot on the heels of the announcement in July by CERN1 experiments ATLAS and CMS of the discovery of a new particle consistent with the long-sought Higgs boson: a discovery that sets the direction for future particle physics research. Although the LHC results have dominated the headlines, other areas, such as neutrino physics, have also seen important advances over recent years.

CERN News - New boson spotted at the LHC: is it the Higgs?

CMS and ATLAS present their results, showing evidence of a new particle of a mass and signature identifying it as the Higgs boson. But more research is needed to ensure this is exactly the boson predicted by the Standard Model.

Neutrino production moves to an industrial scale

The Neutrino Factory is designed to generate the intense beams of high-energy neutrinos required to fathom the behaviour of neutrinos and cast light on fundamental questions in particle physics and beyond.
