"Do you think that after the LHC we may stop referring to the Standard Model?

"In spite of its tremendous success, the Standard Model leaves some questions unanswered. Its structure is not unique and many of its parameters cannot be computed within its theoretical framework. There are good indications that the Standard Model is not the ultimate theory of nature, but is only another effective quantum field theory valid up to a limited scale. We don't know what the next step in nature’s construction is and not even if we will ever be able to prove that there is another step. But we cannot give up: we need to explore further and seek answers."

Guido Tonelli, former spokesperson of the CMS experiment and one of the protagonists of the Higgs boson discovery, discusses the meaning of one of the major breakthroughs of the century, as well as the importance of pushing beyond the current limits of knowledge. He reflects on the present situation in particle physics and the significance of having a vision for the future.​

Cryogenics has widely contributed to the recent major successes of High-Energy Physics (HEP). And conversely, HEP has pushed cryogenic engineering developments to a high level of technical excellence. The 3rd European Cryogenics days, hosted by #CERN, were focused on the latest developments in Cryogenics and laid grounds for further cooperation between academia and industry in this field.

Future cryogenic applications addressing both needs of the fundamental research and applied science were discussed in the second day of the event. HEP research efforts will be concentrated on the development of dedicated cryogenic systems for the High-Luminosity #LHC, under construction at #CERN   and the Future Circular Collider (FCC), under study.

The +ALICE Experiment ​ makes a precise comparison of light nuclei and antinuclei

The result, published today in Nature Physics, confirms a fundamental symmetry of nature to an unprecedented precision for light nuclei
