CERN inaugurates its new permanent "Universe of Particles" exhibition

Geneva, 15 June 2010. CERN1 has recently started operating the LHC, one of the most sophisticated scientific tools ever built to explore new territories of knowledge. To share this exciting adventure with the general public, CERN is opening a visitor centre that is as high-tech and futuristic as its accelerator.

The "Universe of Particles" exhibition, installed in the Globe of Science and Innovation, will be previewed to the media on 25 June.

Physicists and medics set out strategy on physics for health

Geneva 3 June 2010. Following a workshop hosted by the CERN1 European particle physics laboratory in February, doctors and physicists today published a strategy for harnessing physics for health. Techniques developed for physics research have a long history of application in medicine. Today’s news recognises that synergy, and sets out a programme of strengthened collaboration.

Particle chameleon caught in the act of changing

Geneva 31 May 2010. Researchers on the OPERA experiment at the INFN1’s Gran Sasso laboratory in Italy today announced the first direct observation of a tau particle in a muon neutrino beam sent through the Earth from CERN2, 730km away. This is a significant result, providing the final missing piece of a puzzle that has been challenging science since the 1960s, and giving tantalizing hints of new physics to come.

LHC research programme gets underway

Geneva, 30 March 2010. Beams collided at 7 TeV in the LHC at 13:06 CEST, marking the start of the LHC research programme. Particle physicists around the world are looking forward to a potentially rich harvest of new physics as the LHC begins its first long run at an energy three and a half times higher than previously achieved at a particle accelerator.
