actually dont answer that as your internet activity will be getting monitored as standard procedure due to your place of work...we had great faith in barack but he has let us and the world down!  no wonder he looks so sombre.

Splashes for Synchronization

http://atlas.ch/news/2015/splashes-for-synchronization.html

ATLAS uses "beam splash" events to provide simultaneous signals to large parts of the detector, and verify that the readout of different detectors elements are fully synchronized. After the first 2015 Large Hadron Collider beam circulation on Easter Sunday, a run dedicated to taking beam splash events was set up on Tuesday evening, 7 April. The resulting beam splash events shown in these images demonstrate the resulting energy deposition in ATLAS...

‪#‎ATLAS‬ ‪#‎CERN‬ ‪#‎RestartLHC‬ ‪#‎BeamSplash‬
The first long shutdown of the Large Hadron Collider has now ended, after two years of intense but careful activity refurbishing and improving many aspects of ATLAS, mirroring the work to prepare the LHC for collisions at the new energy of 13 TeV. Many dedicated people in ATLAS have worked tirelessly to install a new innermost layer deep inside the experiment, and to make many other important improvements which will enhance the capabilities of th...

we are exploring space...but who gives a damn to our social problems? No one. It makes me sad.

"Space exploration has always created benefits for humankind -- from new technologies and discoveries, to deepening international relationships and inspiring young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and maths.

For more than 50 years, NASA has led the world in space with missions to extend human reach and transform our capabilities and understanding. We're currently implementing an ambitious plan that integrates NASA's activities across exploration and science. It focuses on new technologies to carry out robotic and human missions to the moon, an asteroid and Mars, while enabling us to live and work in space for the long term."

William H. Gerstenmaier is the associate administrator for the Human Exploration and Operations Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington, DC. Read more about his role and background via https://indico.cern.ch/event/386996/

This public talk is part of a 3-day colloquium "AMS days at CERN". The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) Experiment on the International Space Station has to date recorded over 60 billion cosmic ray events (e-, e+, p, antiproton, He, Li, B/C ...) up to TeV energies. AMS is a precision particle physics detector, assembled and extensively calibrated at CERN before its launch in 2011.

Launched in 1977 to explore Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, the two Voyager spacecraft continued their journeys beyond the planets as they searched for the edge of heliosphere, the giant bubble of wind surrounding the sun. Beyond the bubble lies interstellar space, the space between the stars filled with matter from the explosions of other stars and by the magnetic field of the Milky Way. After a thirty-five year journey taking it eighteen billion kilometers from the Earth, Voyager 1 became the first human-made object to enter interstellar space. Voyager’s odyssey continues as it explores the space between the stars.

Edward C. Stone is the David Morrisroe Professor of Physics and Vice Provost for Special Projects at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). He is also the Executive Director of the TMT International Observatory LLC and a former Director of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

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 21 Member States.
