Let them collide!

| 16 February 2017 This animation, created by Rey.Hori, shows what happens when electrons and positrons collide in the ILD detector, one of the planned detectors for the future ILC. Many collisions will happen at the same time around the clock, producing a vast array of possible processes, or events. This animation shows the example of one possible collision event involving the Higgs boson. Here’s a guide to what happens in the clip.

Construction completed: ILC in Roppongi

| 3 November 2016 Did you know that the ILC has already been built? Neatly nestled into the lush hills of the Kitakami region it produces collisions... of art and science. We're talking about a 15-metre mockup that's part of the biggest art event in Tokyo in one of the trendiest places in town. Watch it being made in the video.

New results on the search for gravitational waves – the video

| 3 March 2016 You cannot possibly have missed that gravitational waves have recently been discovered by the LIGO-VIRGO scientific collaborations. But in case you missed the talk at CERN explaining it, you can watch it here. See also "A dream comes true" from the last issue of LC NewsLine, a personal view of the discovery by Barry Barish.

Next generation records #mylinearcollider videos

25 November 2015 At the 9th International Accelerator School for Linear Collider, many young scientists joined the #mylinearcollider campaign – video messages from all over the world from people who wish to participate in the project. We have prepared a new playlist of messages from young scientists, #nextgeneration, on YouTube. Have a a look at what the next generation has to say! Category: Video of the week | Tagged: ,

Videos of the ILC Tokyo Event available on YouTube

23 July 2015 Let's look back for the last Linear Collider conference held in Japan in Spring. Videos of the Tokyo Event are now available on TouTube! Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , ,

ILC Science Club kick off

9 July 2015 From 1 June 2015, Japanese cable TV, Tokyo Cable Network (TCN) started to broadcast the new program "ILC Science Kids club." The program is available on YouTube with English subtitles.

Steven Weinberg and Gerard ‘t Hooft join #mylinearcollider

11 June 2015 Gerard 't Hooft and Steven Weinberg speak in favour of the expected precision results a linear collider would bring, joining the #mylinearcollider video campaign from their offices in the Netherlands and at the University of Texas. They point out the benefits the project would bring not only to the host, but to the world of science and humanity in general, and Weinberg advocates Japan as the host site for the project.

Researchers and nobel laureates support the ILC

14 May 2015 Nobel laureates Toshihide Maskawa, Masatoshi Koshiba, David Gross and Burton Richter join the #mylinearcollider campaign. Plus as a little bonus a compilation of some of the videos collected during the campaign so far. Can you find yourself? Category: Video of the week | Tagged: ,

Einstein’s E=mc2 explained in 2 minutes

| 2 April 2015 110 years ago, Albert Einstein published four historical papers... and a very famous equation.For this special birthday, Symmetry Magazine succeded to explain, in a very simple way, how E=mc2, an equation "used" everyday in particle accelerators, has radically changed our way of doing physics. Watch the animation and read also Symmetry Magazine's related article. Category: Video of the week | Tagged:

The ILC is a fantastic accelerator, Nobel says

| 19 March 2015 Professor David Gross speaks in strong support for the International Linear Collider, a "fantastic new accelerator". He says that for the exploation of the properties of the Higgs‬, the promise of new particles, forces and a new understanding the ILC is one of "the most exciting prospects." He says the he "applauds the Japanese government and Japanese colleagues for leading the effort to host the ILC in Japan, and I trust and hope that the international community will join this effort." David Gross was awarded the ‪NobelPrize‬ in Physics in 2004 along with Frank Wilczek and David Politzer. He is a theoretical physicist at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at UC Santa Barbara. Category: Video of the week | Tagged:
