Particle scientists are cool!

| 22 September 2016 Junior high-school students Kotomi Sato and Momoyo Sugawara, members of the “ILC club,” visited CERN last August with three other students to learn more about life in a big international science laboratory. They were invited to give a short debriefing during a panel discussion at an ILC symposium held on 10 September in Oshu city, where both girls said that they thought particle scientists are 'cool'! Sato has always loved science and she is determined to become a researcher at the ILC. Sugawara met many people in Geneva who greeted her in Japanese, and she felt very happy about it. "I want to study English harder," she said, "to make foreign people comfortable if the ILC is being built in my neighborhood."

ILC introduced with fun at KEK Open House

| 8 September 2016 Many ILC related fun events were offered to the visitors of KEK open house held on 4 September. They must have learned that the ILC is a fun stuff! Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , ,

A well-focused workshop on top quark physics held at KEK

| 22 July 2016 The top quark is one of the pillars of the physics topics that linear colliders address. From 6 to 9 July 2016, a dedicated workshop on top physics at the lepton colliders was held at KEK. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , ,

Higgs anniversary pizza

7 July 2016 The anniversary of the announcement of the Higgs discovery (which happened on 4 July 2012) was hard to miss at CERN this year. People braced waiting times of more than 30 minutes to have a taste of discovery: the specially created Higgs pizza! Two shoots of asparagus (proton beams) collide in the middle of the pizza to create a Higgs boson that then decays. For carnivores, the chorizo Higgs decays into two two high-energy photons made of salami alongside some charged ham and neutral olive particles; vegetarians ate the decay of a tomato Higgs into four pepper muons.

Impressions from Santander

| 9 June 2016 You cannot miss that there was a big linear collider meeting last week: the Director's Corner gives a summary of results and the Feature highlights a key decision taken during the workshop. Here are some visual impressions of the week, including from the Japanese-Spanish industrial forum on accelerator technologies and advanced detector instrumentation, the opening and some of the sessions.

German particle physics community gives “strongest support” to ILC

| 26 May 2016 It may feel like only yesterday that the update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics was adopted, but preparations for a new one, planned for 2018/19, are already underway. Germany has now published its first conclusions from a workshop on future electron-positron colliders that are very supportive of the ILC. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , , , , ,

National Lab Day

| 12 May 2016 Fermilab, SLAC, JLab, Brookhaven, Argonne... these are all major players in particle physics and accelerator R&D. They are also the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) "national labs". All national research labs came to Washington, D.C. on 20 April to show their work to members of Congress and other visitors. Pictured is Dick Durbin, Illinois senator, giving his address. DOE has 17 national laboratories that address a variety of scientific and technological challenges to energy, environmental and national security. The laboratories employ more than 30,000 scientists, engineers and support staff in 19 states, and operate major scientific facilities for the benefit of the nation’s research and development community.

Advertising past and future sights

14 April 2016 Iwate Prefecture in Japan is advertising the attractions of its region in four Tokyo subway lines. It proudly presents the world heritage site of Hiraizumi – as well as its possible future attraction, the ILC! Some things are more likely to happen in Japan than in any other country...

Thirst for knowledge – the ILC vending machine

| 24 March 2016 Fancying a coffee in Morioka? Supporting the ILC? You could do both at the same time with the ILC vending machine. For each cup, part of the proceeds will go to the Iwate ILC Promotion Council. You will find it on the third floor of the Malios skyscraper next to Morioka Station.

ARUP tool shortlisted for prestigious prize

| 11 February 2016 Remember the ingenious civil engineering tool that British consultancy ARUP has developed for CERN's FCC and that is also being used for site-specific planning of the ILC? That thing where you can play around with shafts, tunnels and rock formations without leaving your desk? It's been shortlisted for a prestigious award, so keep your fingers crossed.
