CERN's Graeme Stewart tours six decades of computing milestones in high-energy physics and describes the immense challenges ahead in taming data from future experiments.
The world’s largest optical/near-infrared telescope, the Extremely Large Telescope, under construction in Chile, will bring mysteries such as dark energy into focus.
Oliver James describes the visual effects which produced the black hole in Interstellar.
FPGAs can now be programmed in C++ and Java, bringing machine learning and complex algorithms within the scope of trigger-level analysis.
Founded 80 years ago, the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) is one of Europe’s largest research institutions.
Fondé il y a 80 ans, le Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS), en France, est l’une des plus importantes institutions de recherche en Europe.
Superconducting magnet technology has fuelled some of the greatest discoveries in high-energy physics and is at the core of existing and next-generation circular particle accelerators, writes Luca Bot...
In the autumn of 1989 the Large Electron Positron collider (LEP) delivered the first of several results that still dominate the landscape of particle physics today.
LEP was the highest energy e+e– collider ever built, with levels of precision that remain unsurpassed in accelerator physics. Former CERN director of accelerators Steve Myers tells LEP’s story fro...
John Osborne, Alexandra Tudora and Ben Swatton survey the geological, environmental and technical constraints of a post-LHC collider.
