Internaut day is being celebrated around the world on 23 August to mark the invention of the World Wide Web. An “internaut” is a person who possesses a thorough knowledge of how to use the Internet and its history. But what is the … Continue reading
Amy’s story became famous because her brother found her tumor in a tickle fight. It caught my attention because her cancer may be treated with a particle accelerator, just one of the ways particle physics research has given unexpected benefits … Continue reading
A team at Los Alamos has a plan for using cosmic rays to examine the remains of the Fukushima nuclear reactors. In a paper in Physical Review Letters, researchers compared two methods for using cosmic-ray radiography to gather images of … Continue reading
A particle accelerator named ALICE (not to be confused with the LHC experiment of the same name) is researching and developing an energy recovery technique. It also may be able to generate infrared laser light that may be able to … Continue reading
My colleague Xinchun Tian writes that someday we may be able to use neutrinos to predict earthquakes!
…he has set a tent for the sun, which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy. Its rising is from the end of the heavens, … Continue reading
One of the professors with whom I work found an article on a New York Times blog entitled “When Losing Leads to Winning.” He presented it to one of his undergraduate classes and asked them to evaluate the procedure and … Continue reading

The International Linear Collider (ILC) The ILC is an accelerator currently being planned by a large segment of the particle physics community. Building it will require many technological innovations and great engineering skill. The direct and indirect benefits of the … Continue reading
Fostering International Collaboration The size, cost, and complexity of particle physics detectors and data sets often requires the collaboration of multiple nations from around the world. Ideally, this means that scientists will sometimes learn to cooperate and communicate more effectively … Continue reading
