CERN Courier magazine: January/February 2013 digital edition

Cern Courier

Welcome to the digital edition of the January/February 2013 issue of CERN Courier – the first digital edition of this magazine.

CERN Courier dates back to August 1959, when the first issue appeared, consisting of eight black-and-white pages. Since then it has seen many changes in design and layout, leading to the current full-colour editions of more than 50 pages on average. It went on the web for the first time in October 1998, when IOP Publishing took over the production work. Now, we have taken another step forward with this digital edition, which provides yet another means to access the content beyond the Web and print editions, which continue as before.

Back in 1959, the first issue reported on progress towards the start of CERN's first proton synchrotron. This current issue includes a report from the physics frontier as seen by the ATLAS experiment at the laboratory's current flagship, the LHC, as well as a look at work that is under way to get the most from this remarkable machine in future. Particle physics has changed a great deal since 1959 and this is reflected in the article on the emergence of QCD, the theory of the strong interaction, in the early 1970s.
