Depends what we define as "life", ok enough of that April trolling :)

#‎RestartLHC‬ is back on track!

The LHC should be ready for beam in a few days’ time:

its infinitely more complex dimensionally: you can't place these atomizations on a grid and impose limitations like km on the configurations/\think atomic fission...

Did you guess it? The image shows two diode boxes for an LHC dipole magnet, find out more in the final paragraph of this LHC report: or the box at the end of this article:

Congratulations to duane a and Pierre Gaudet, who were the closest to the correct answer to Friday’s post.

That was my next guess.

In pictures: X-rays probe LHC for cause of short circuit

A short circuit in a superconducting dipole magnet is delaying beam injection to the LHC. Teams are working around the clock to investigate the situation and fix the issue.…/pictures-x-rays-probe-lhc-cause-s…

The international film festival CineGlobe starts today at CERN.

The festival, which will run until Sunday 2 March, is about the convergence of art, cinema and science. The theme for this 5th edition of the festival is ‘Convergence’.

Physicists at CERN are excited that ‪#‎RestartLHC‬ is nearly here ... you could even say they're HAPPY!

Happy International ‪#‎HappyDay‬ everyone!

+Giovanni Stracciari again I said im not religious, you didnt read my post!
 Quite frankly your communication to me has been extremely telling about you.
~Your Arrogance and Ignorance in communicating with others, your highest level goes to insulting others because you truly have nothing of value to add to the conversation I have opened up. :/
~ You clearly avoid all points and questions I made > Your like a deer facing head lights < you know what I said is extremely valid.
~You are very disrespectful with double standards will catch up to you.

just because you insult people doesn't make you smart it makes you look like a fool who's incapable of having a conversation

Back in December 2014, preparations were underway to insert the pixel tracker into +CMS Experiment:
Now, after months of work, the tracker has been successfully inserted. Watch this timelapse video to see what was involved as the experiment gets ready for #RestartLHC.

CMS is eager to see the first collisions of the LHC Run2. The recent news that the LHC restart may be delayed because of a hardware issue gives us extra time to prepare for those collisions. Far from being idle waiting for collisions, CMS is busy taking advantage of other types of collision.

"A switch by any name is still a switch"...and by that parameter, many of the respondents were correct!
All of the "Professor Frink"-types that want to argue "'s a's not the same!" need a woman, instead of trying to build a 'de-bigulator'.

Did you guess it? The image, from 1974, uses graph paper glued onto cardboard stuck in a slotted base-plate to show how a circulating beam of particles oscillates when it receives a transverse kick. Read more about the image here:

Exploring the frontiers of knowledge
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.
