Large Hadron Collider
CERN employees "sometimes let their sense of humor go too far."
The idea that science is going to create or unleash a Frankenstein that may kill all of us has been around for a couple of centuries, but lately this particular type of scare has grown.
As a particle physicist working with the CMS collaboration taking data in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), now is an incredibly
The small mammal received a fatal lesson about electricity.
PART 1: A Wide-Ranging Conversation with Physicist Geoffrey West about Life, Evolution and US Presidential Politics
Redmayne as Hawking. Cumberbatch as Turing. If the timing were right, Christopher Lee would have been superb in the big-screen story of British-born theoretical physicist Geoffrey West. (I've interviewed both.)
The instrumentation that allowed this observation is a technical marvel and a whole new way of examining the universe has
Now you can check out every inch of the Large Hadron Collider.
The spirit of New Yorks' 5 Pointz graffiti/street art holy place has popped up in the same Queens neighborhood where it was demolished in 2014, and since last summer more than 50 local and international aerosol artists have been hitting a new project.
Many textbooks that briefly describe the history of mathematics and physics leave you with the impression that progress in these fields is achieved through a direct march to the truth. People working in these domains, however, know that nothing can be further from the truth.
This fall, it has been a busy time collecting and analyzing data coming from the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector located
I had the opportunity to interview CERN scientist and visiting professor Dr. Mir Faizal from the University of Waterloo on the controversial subject of black holes, using the Hadron Collider to create them, and future discoveries.
There exists a future of artificial intelligence, rampant inequality and irreversible climate change. But there is also a future of abundance, where technology and good public policy leads to a better life for everyone. If you had the chance to take us back to the future -- to 2045 -- what future would you present?
