CERN Courier magazine: July/August 2013 digital edition

Cern Courier

Welcome to the digital edition of the July/August 2013 issue of CERN Courier

This "double issue" provides plenty to read during what is for many people the holiday season. The feature articles illustrate well the breadth of modern particle physics – from the Standard Model, which is still being tested in the analysis of data from Fermilab's Tevatron, to the tantalizing hints of extraterrestrial neutrinos from the IceCube Observatory at the South Pole. A connection of a different kind between space and particle physics emerges in the interview with the astronaut who started his postgraduate life at CERN, while connections between particle physics and everyday life come into focus in the application of particle detectors to the diagnosis of breast cancer. And if this is not enough, take a look at Summer Bookshelf, with its selection of suggestions for more relaxed reading.
