Did you guess it? The image, taken in 1977, shows a transparent capacitative touch screen invented at CERN for the control system of the SPS accelerator. Back in 1977, CERN showcased this technology at the world’s leading industrial fair, the Hannover Messe. Last week, CERN was back at the Messe, this time with +European Space Agency, ESA, to showcase the latest technologies: http://home.web.cern.ch/about/updates/2014/04/cern-technology-could-help-out-space and http://cds.cern.ch/journal/CERNBulletin/2014/16/News%20Articles/1693854?ln=en.

Find out more about the touch screen technology developed at CERN in the 1970s: https://cds.cern.ch/journal/CERNBulletin/2010/13/News%20Articles/1248908?ln=en and http://cerncourier.com/cws/article/cern/42092.

Congratulations to Will B, the first to get the correct answer to Friday’s post.

Without Cern we wouldn't have half the technology we take for granted. Definitely Worth spending billions each year!

CERN is celebrating 60 years of science for peace with a series of events, including two today.

In half an hour (18:30 IDT), watch the live webcast of a public talk by CERN Director General Rolf Heuer, organised by Tel Aviv University and the Israeli Academy of Sciences, via http://video.tau.ac.il/events/index.php?option=com_k2&view=itemlist&task=category&id=854:cern-60-years-of-research-at-the-frontiers-of-knowledge&Itemid=425&lang=en.

In addition, tonight Ugo Amaldi will present "Science and society: the impact of fundamental physics on medicine" at the CERN Globe of Science and Innovation http://outreach.web.cern.ch/outreach/evenements/conferences.html. The event will not be webcast but a recording should be available soon afterwards.

To find out more about this year's events at CERN and in the Member States visit http://cern.ch/cern60. #CERN60

The article fails to mention Ben Segal's connection with two projects of Citizen Science for CERN, SixTrack and Test4Theory, both run on BOINC software from The Space Science Lab at UC Berkeley.

World-record current in a superconductor

The CERN Superconductors team recently obtained a world-record current of 20 kA at 24 K in an electrical transmission line (pictured here) consisting of two 20-metre long cables made of Magnesium Diboride (MgB2) superconductor: http://home.web.cern.ch/about/updates/2014/04/world-record-current-superconductor.

This result, in the framework of the High-Luminosity LHC project, makes the technology a viable solution for long-distance power transportation.

QUAND AZOTE REPRESENTE LES CAPTEURS QUI ENVOIENT LES DONNEES RELEVEES PAR LES CAPTEURS SYMBOLIQUES DE L'OXYGENE QUI ENTRECROISENT PARTICULES AU SEIN DU SYSTEME MOLECULAIRE : LE LHC CERN EST UNE SUR AMPLIFICATION D'UN FILTRE NATUREL DE L'ORGANISME.

AUX VALEURS HISTORIQUES IMPLIQUEES : EN 1959 LORS D'ORGANISATION SCIENTIFIQUES D'ENDOCTRINEMENTS AU NAZISME PAR DEMENTIS DE CULPABILITES DES GRANDES RELIGIONS A LA PERENNISATION DES MODELES INSTRUCTIFS D'INCITATIONS AUX GENOCIDES, ILS NEGLIGEAIENT UNE DES DEFAITES CULTURELLES ESSENTIELLE A LA FIN DE LA GUERRE MONDIALE, CELLE QUE ' LA DICTATURE FUT UNE PROPAGANDE ZOOPHILE A LA NECROPHILIE CANNIBALE GENOCIDAIRE.
ALORS QUE L'ATTENTION SCIENTIFIQUE CHERCHAIT A SE PORTER SUR UNE RICHESSE GENETIQUE, DE L'HOMME BRUN QUI A DES PILOSITES RARES ROUSSES AU NIVEAU DE LA BOITE CRANIENNE DE PART UNE EXPERIENCE ERUDITE INNEE DES SCIENCES UNIVERSELLES DU VIVANT. 

LES EQUIPES SCIENTIFIQUES ONT DES OBLIGATIONS ENVERS LES POPULATIONS DE NOUVELLES GENERATIONS, ELLES NE FURENT PAS RESPECTEES EN 2012, CE QUI JUSTIFIE OPINIONS CONTRE LA RECONNAISSANCE DES ACTIVITES DU LHC CERN.

LHCb confirms existence of exotic hadrons

The LHCb collaboration today published an unambiguous observation of an exotic particle that cannot be classified within the traditional quark model.

http://home.web.cern.ch/about/updates/2014/04/lhcb-confirms-existence-exotic-hadrons

Image shows the +LHCb Experiment, underground at Point 2 on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The prominent tube is the LHC beam pipe, in which protons circulate at close to the speed of light.

For the Greek students who visited CERN recently, the journey to the world of particle physics started at primary school.

Less than 1 month remains to see #SMcollider exhibition at the +Science Museum http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/collider before it moves to MOSI http://www.mosi.org.uk/whats-on/collider.aspx
 
We sat down with Pippa Nissen from Nissen Richards Studio to talk about her team’s work on our Collider exhibition http://blog.sciencemuseum.org.uk/insight/2014/03/17/designing-collider/

Story
Tagline
Exploring the frontiers of knowledge
Introduction
CERN is a truly unique organisation. A genuine collaboration between countries, universities and scientists, driven not by profit margins, but by a commitment to create and share knowledge.

People here are part of immense scientific discoveries, answering some of life’s most complex questions and pushing the boundaries of understanding. Experts from every field come here to share in this ambition and the nature of this collaborative, international community creates a genuine atmosphere of trust. People are free to work creatively and to trust in, and rely on, their colleagues across the organisation.

History’s being made here – and the excitement is tangible, inspiring, overwhelming at times. It is the only place in the world that you can do this work in this way!

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the Universe is made of and how it works. At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter, the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of Nature.

The instruments used at CERN are particle accelerators and detectors. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before they are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions.

Founded in 1954, the CERN Laboratory sits astride the Franco–Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe’s first joint ventures and now has 20 Member States.
