The Large Electron Positron collider changed particle physics forever. As the field eyes up the next major collider, former CERN Director-General Herwig Schopper describes what it took to make LEP hap...
The open symposium of the European Strategy for Particle Physics stimulated much lively discussion about the future of particle physics and the central role of CERN, writes Eckhard Elsen.
How should the next major project in particle physics be communicated to ensure its reach and success?
Christian Stegmann, director of DESY’s newly established research division for astroparticle physics, describes the ambitious plans ahead in this vibrant field.
New political landscapes make international organisations in science more vital than ever, argues John Womersley.
New technologies can be used to give every human being secure and sovereign control over their own digital identity, argues Monique Morrow.
We have conquered the easiest challenges in fundamental physics, says Nima Arkani-Hamed. The case for building the next major collider is now more compelling than ever.
As the second update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics gets under way, Tatsuya Nakada reflects on the experience of the previous update in 2013.
The last few years have seen an explosion of ideas concerning naturalness, but we’re only at the beginning of our understanding, says theorist Nathaniel Craig.
It is high time we addressed the low representation of women in high-energy theoretical physics, says Marika Taylor.
