CERN Courier magazine: April 2016 digital edition

Cern Courier

Welcome to the digital edition of the April 2016 issue of CERN Courier

The issue went to print while the LHC resumed operation after the technical stop that started in December 2015. At the same time, in another accelerator, SuperKEKB in Japan, beams have completed their first turns. However, the spotlight these days is not so much on accelerator physics as on the discovery of gravitational waves by the LIGO interferometers in the US, which is gaining the interest of the whole scientific community. The interview with Barry Barish, one of the founding fathers of LIGO, proves just how hard scientific endeavours can sometimes be. Hard, but also extremely rewarding. Coming back to closer universes, this issue also features articles about CERN’s neutron facility, ALICE’s new TPC, and science carried out with a PET cyclotron. Last but not least, Interactions & Crossroads brings you information about interesting conferences in physics and related fields around the world.
