Barbara Warmbein | 19 March 2015The Large Hadron Collider is about to start up again as an almost new machine and almost twice the previous collision energy. With first beams possibly circulating by the end of the month and first collisions expected for the beginning of summer, physicists around the world cannot wait to see what the collisions of Run 2 will reveal. Will there be first signs of supersymmetry, a possible key to the as yet locked dark universe? What will the properties of the Higgs boson reveal? Will there be unexpected peaks in the data? And how do these results translate to the ILC? LC NewsLine speaks to two theoretical physicists.

Perrine Royole-Degieux | 19 May 2011Maurice Bourquin, emeritus professor at the University of Geneva and former president of the CERN Council, is one of the pioneer scientists from the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer Experiment collaboration. Just after the AMS-02 detector was launched, he answered ILC NewsLine’s questions about AMS history, AMS challenges, and the interplay between collider and space experiments.

23 March 2006You may see thousands of stars or countless numbers of galaxies in the night sky. The universe is so vast that it would seem like just an infinite number of galaxies are out there. But in fact, what a human observes in the universe as visible light or any other form of radiation is just a fraction of what actually exists.
