CERN welcomes its first artist in residence

Creative collisions have begun at CERN with the arrival of Julius von Bismarck as the laboratory's first Collide@CERN artist in residence. A rising star of the international arts scene, von Bismarck will team up with theoretical physicist James Wells as he works alongside the lab's engineers and scientists for the next two months before moving to the Ars Electronica Centre in Linz, Austria for the second part of his residency. Von Bismarck and Wells will give a public presentation in CERN's Globe of Science and Innovation on 21 March. Doors open at 6.45pm.

Higgs hunt narrows

Today scientists at the Large Hadron Collider announced tantalising news about the biggest piece missing from the physics jigsaw.
The Higgs boson is a hypothetical particle used to explain why many of the fundamental particles in the Standard Model of particle physics have mass.
Proving if it exists is tricky because the model doesn't predict its exact mass.
Now results from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) suggest that, if it exists, the Higgs is most likely to have a mass between 116-130 gigaelectronvolts (GeV), according to the ATLAS experiment, and 115-127 GeV according to CMS.

Higgs boson: scientists reveal first tantalising glimpses of 'God Particle'

At a specially-arranged seminar at the Cern laboratory in Geneva, researchers presented clues in their data which suggest experts may have pinned down the "God particle" at last.
Scientists remained cautious about their findings and insisted they did not represent an official discovery, but admitted the results were "intriguing".
The two teams searching for the Higgs boson at the LHC said they had found hints which point towards a Higgs boson with a mass between 124 and 126 gigaelectronvolts (GeV).

What's keeping thousands of CERN physicists busy right now?

We made big promises in terms of potential discoveries with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) but so far, nothing new has emerged. So what are the thousands of physicists involved in the various LHC experiments doing right now? Quite simple: we are inspecting every square centimeter of thousands of acres of new territory opened up by the LHC.

The ATLAS Experiment on the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at CERN is one of the largest, most complex scientific instruments ever constructed. It is operated by physicists, engineers, technicians and support staff from 38 countries around the world. Drawn together by our common love of science, many of us are also passionate about music.

Resonance is a double CD featuring a variety of musical styles from classical to heavy metal. It also includes a DVD with footage of the recording sessions and interviews with the musicians.

Proceeds from the sales of Resonance are donated to the Happy Children's Home, a charity that runs an orphanage in Pokara, Nepal.

Antimatter atoms produced and trapped at CERN

The ALPHA experiment at CERN has taken an important step forward in developing techniques to understand one of the Universe's open questions: is there a difference between matter and antimatter? In a paper published in Nature today, the collaboration shows that it has successfully produced and trapped atoms of antihydrogen. This development opens the path to new ways of making detailed measurements of antihydrogen, which will in turn allow scientists to compare matter and antimatter.
Antimatter - or the lack of it - remains one of the biggest mysteries of science. Matter and its counterpart are identical except for opposite charge, and they annihilate when they meet. At the Big Bang, matter and antimatter should have been produced in equal amounts. However, we know that our world is made up of matter: antimatter seems to have disappeared. To find out what has happened to it, scientists employ a range of methods to investigate whether a tiny difference in the properties of matter and antimatter could point towards an explanation.
