Endorsing the ILC “in the strongest way”

1 March 2018 “We have our hands around the mechanism that creates mass in nature but we need the tools to study it.” Barry Barish adds his voice to the #mylinearcollider video campaign, endorses the ILC "in the strongest way." Barish led the Global Design Effort for the ILC before he returned to LIGO and was awarded the Nobel Prize for the detection of gravitational waves. Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , ,

We are back!

| 14 December 2017 A lot has happened since our last issue of NewsLine, most notably the ICFA-supported option of a 250-GeV ILC, and a Nobel Prize for Barry Barish. Lyn Evans reports on the statement issued by ICFA and what a 250-GeV ILC would mean for the project. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Elementary – an award for thorough detective work

| 15 October 2015 European Regional Director Brian Foster is very pleased that this years’ Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to two particle physicists. Neutrinos had long been a complete puzzle, and the (improbable but true) discovery that they oscillate is an excellent example of the importance of experiments. The ILC can continue this tradition.

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: ,

From CERN: CERN congratulates François Englert and Peter W. Higgs on the award of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics

10 October 2013 CERN congratulates François Englert and Peter W. Higgs on the award of the Nobel prize in physics “for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.” The announcement by the ATLAS and CMS experiments took place on 4 July last year.

Yes!

| 10 October 2013 The Nobel Prize in Physics this year has gone to François Englert and Peter Higgs for their theoretical discovery of the Higgs mechanism, recently confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's LHC. The linear collider community, represented by Deputy LCC Director Hitoshi Murayama, congratulates the two theorists on this appropriate award for the monumental work.

Editors’ note (special banner)

10 October 2013 After 4 July 2012, 8 October 2013 was another important date in the life of particle physicists when the work of François Englert and Peter Higgs was recognised with the 2013 Physics Nobel Prize. At the same moment, the thousands of LHC particle physicists felt also rewarded for their hard work in finding the Higgs particle. Much more than just another member in the particle zoo, the Higgs boson discovery has opened the door to a whole new range of questions, which the LHC and the linear collider will try to solve. Find out more in this issue about how a linear collider can help in study of the Higgs particle and read again our special "Higgs discovery issue" of 5 July 2012. Category: Uncategorized | Tagged: ,

From CERN Bulletin: In conversation with Nobel Laureate Jack Steinberger

14 July 2011 Awarded the 1988 Nobel Prize for Physics for his discovery of the muon neutrino, Jack Steinberger recently celebrated his 90th birthday and can still be found in his CERN office on an almost daily basis. If you happened to have a coffee with him… this is what he would tell you: his recollections, and thoughts about the present and future of particle physics. Category: Profile | Tagged: , , ,
