With the New Year, everyone is making new resolutions. Ours is to make sure we give everyone the best content in the best places. Over 2016, the number of followers and the level of engagement on CERN’s Google+ page has declined. In 2017, we will no longer post on Google+ and will focus on our other social media channels. You can continue the adventures with us by following:

twitter.com/cern/
instagram.com/cern
youtube.com/cerntv

linkedin.com/company/cern

You can also continue on Google+ by following +ATLAS Experiment and +CMS Experiment.

It’s been a pleasure to share our love of physics with you. Thank you very much!
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.

In a paper published today in Nature, the ALPHA collaboration reports the 1st ever measurement on the light spectrum of an antimatter atom. This achievement features technological developments that open up a completely new era in high-precision antimatter research.

+Greg Martin Haha you must be trolling. Anyways, being a "bully" doesn't mean someone's points are invalid, so unless you come up with a better argument than "wait and see", people calling you stupid is to be expected.

Hello CERN, Can you get to google+ agein and return posting to google+
I do like CERN Posts but I do not like the Facebbook Stay friends and instagramm.
It is a pity you are not posting at google+ as announced.

+Dan Boots​ Yep, at least if it's noise sensitive. Doing low noise measurements is a lot of tedious work 😉

Did you guess it?

This photo shows part of the neutron time-of-flight facility, n_TOF. It has been in operation at CERN since 2001 and studies neutron–nucleus interactions.

The name n_TOF comes from the fact that neutron kinetic energy is determined by time-of-flight. To produce neutrons, a pulsed beam of protons from the Proton Synchrotron (PS) is directed at a lead target.

Data produced by n_TOF are used in astrophysics to study stellar evolution and supernovae. Intense neutron beams are also important in hadrontherapy (the treatment of tumors with beams of hadrons) and studies of how to incinerate waste.

Congratulations to +Bob Looter, the first to get the answer to Friday’s post.

1970: ISR main control room

#ThrowbackThursday #TBT

This photo shows the Intersecting Storage Rings (ISR) main control room on the night of 20 October 1970 when a beam of protons was first successfully injected into Ring I. Later, on 27 January 1971, two beams of protons collided in the ISR for the first time.

The ISR was the world’s first hadron collider and performed the first-ever proton-proton and proton-antiproton collisions.

Today, the +ATLAS Experiment releases the first measurement of the W boson mass using Large Hadron Collider (LHC) data.

The W boson was discovered at CERN in 1983 and led to a Nobel Prize in physics in 1984.

Yes. I read it. I am very exciting about this article remebering in 1984. My favourred time at the grmmarschool.
It had been pleasured. this time.

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.
