Cover of CERN Courier Volume 56 Issue 10


CERN soups up its antiproton source

The ELENA facility will increase the number of available antiprotons for experiments for precision matter–antimatter comparisons.

Testing times for space–time symmetry

Numerous experiments, many of them at CERN, are testing for violations of Lorentz and CPT symmetry in the search for new physics.

Cosmic rays continue to confound

Five years of data from the AMS experiment on board the International Space Station reveal intriguing features.

What is AMS telling us?

The latest cosmic-ray data from AMS have implications for particle-physics models of dark matter and other novel phenomena.
