CERN Courier magazine: September 2015 digital edition

Cern Courier

Welcome to the digital edition of the September 2015 issue of CERN Courier

It is now 60 years since the antiproton was discovered at Berkeley in September 1955 and 20 years since the first antihydrogen atoms were made at CERN. Over the decades, antiprotons have become a standard tool in particle physics, and antihydrogen is now a miniature laboratory for investigations in fundamental physics, as this month’s anniversary feature describes. Recently, the BASE collaboration at the Antiproton Decelerator reported on a new comparison of the proton and antiproton to test a basic symmetry. Also at CERN, the ALICE experiment is investigating how loosely bound objects, including antinuclei, can survive the hot and dense heavy-ion collisions at the LHC.
