CERN Courier magazine: July/August 2015 digital edition

Cern Courier

Welcome to the digital edition of the July/August 2015 issue of CERN Courier

Appropriately in the International Year of Light, SESAME, the first light source for the Middle East, is coming together in preparation for commissioning in 2016. The project is a working example of Arab–Israeli–Iranian–Turkish–Cypriot–Pakistani collaboration, and is already on its way to becoming the region’s first truly international centre of excellence. Meanwhile, in Russia, Lake Baikal is on its way to becoming one of the world’s largest neutrino telescopes, thanks to the detection of Cherenkov light in its deep, clear water. And out in space, the Planck mission detects the oldest light in the universe, and complements experiments at the LHC by studying fundamental phenomena at the opposite end of the distance scale.
