CERN Courier magazine: October 2013 digital edition

Cern Courier

Welcome to the digital edition of the October 2013 issue of CERN Courier

Particle-physics experiments take place in all kinds of places. Out in space, the AMS-02 experiment on the International Space Station has worked flawlessly for more than two years, collecting data on 36.5 × 109 cosmic rays. Eagerly awaited results were presented at this year's major cosmic-ray conference. Deep under a mountain, in the Gran Sasso National Laboratory, the XENON100 experiment searches for dark matter and has new stringent limits. Nearer to the Earth's surface, the current shutdown at CERN is providing the opportunity for improvements to detectors – in this issue the focus is on ATLAS – as well as time to review results from the first long run, as ALICE does here. All this and more were topics for EPS-HEP 2013, the major summer conference that was held in Stockholm.
