CERN and Ars Electronica launch open call for the third Prix Ars Electronica Collide@CERN

Geneva/Linz, 3 June 2013. CERN1 and Ars Electronica2 today launch an open call for artists working in the digital domain to apply for the third Prix Ars Electronica Collide @ CERN3. The winner will receive a fully funded residency at CERN and Ars Electronica to create new dimensions in their artistic practice by encounters with the world of science. This is the third year of the collaboration between CERN and Ars Electronica.

Physicists at CERN measure a fundamental property of the rarest element on Earth

Geneva, 14 May 2013. An international team of physicists at the radioactive-beam facility ISOLDE at CERN1 have for the first time measured the ionization potential of the rare radioactive element astatine2.

The value for astatine, published today in the journal Nature Communications, could help chemists to develop applications for the element in radiotherapy, and will serve as a benchmark for theories that predict the structure of super-heavy elements.
