CERN Courier magazine: December 2017 digital edition

Cern Courier

Welcome to the digital edition of the December 2017 issue of CERN Courier

We can all agree that education and outreach are vital for the future of high-energy physics, but finding the time to take part in such activities as a research scientist can be hard. Writing in this issue, president of the CERN Council, Sijbrand de Jong, leads by example. We also look at 25 years of the European School of High-Energy Physics, which has helped launch countless research careers, and get an insider’s perspective on inspiring students via a visit to CERN. Hot off the heels of the award of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of gravitational waves, Barry Barish describes the status and future of gravitational-wave science, while this month’s cover feature reports on progress in advanced and novel accelerators and the long-term goal of a high-energy linear collider. Also, as part of a larger research programme to understand the cosmological matter–antimatter imbalance, the ASACUSA collaboration describes new measurements of hydrogen’s hyperfine structure. Finally, we bid farewell to the Courier’s production editor Lisa Gibson, who has been part of the team since 2013. Having produced the layouts for 45 issues and dealt with the differing demands of three Courier editors, we thank her for all her creative input and wish her the very best in her new career.
