The 2nd Largest Particle Accelerator in the World Just Got a Massive Upgrade

The Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory — or Fermilab — announced that a 680-ton superconducting magnet is secure in its new home and nearly ready for a new era of discovery in particle physics.   56 more words


Is CERN Being Used to Access Dark Energy, Black Holes, & Other Dimensions?

CERN is currently in the process of cranking up the Large Hadron Collider — the largest machine man has ever built — to 13TeV, the highest known energy level humans have ever used in a particle collider experiment in known modern history. 253 more words


CERN Photo Walk

Having just opened a ‘twitter’ to get my photos out there, I am mostly impressed with the ease of connectivity with individuals, companies and organisations in the fields of science and tech. 280 more words

CW's Flash casts Demore Barnes as Tokamak

Demore Barnes will appear on the show as Henry Hewitt, a character better known to Firestorm fans as Tokamak. Hewitt is described  as “a charming, but cocky scientist who was affected by the same Particle Accelerator explosion that created the Flash. 39 more words


Mind's Horizon

Boundaries and limits;
We set them for ourselves,
Inherent to the way we define definitions

If there’s no measure there’s no size

Paper outlines benefits of Cernox™ for high-energy physics applications

There are some unique challenges when having to monitor temperatures of superconducting magnets in high-energy accelerator facilities. Scientists require sensors with resolution high enough to detect small temperature changes plus fast thermal response times to detect potential superconducting magnet quenches.  173 more words
