Children put science in the picture with the exhibition “Draw me a physicist”

Geneva 3 June 2010. From 12 to 23 June 2010, CERN1 ’s Globe of Science and Innovation will be hosting the exhibition “Draw me a physicist”, featuring over 160 drawings and definitions by children on the subject of scientific research.

The exhibition is the result of a project conducted jointly by CERN and 20 primary school classes from the Pays de Gex and the Canton of Geneva. The six-month project had the goal of educating schoolchildren about the profession of research scientist and the world of research.

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.
