Gravity Speaks

It’s likely the most important scientific advance of our lifetimes. The recent detection of gravitational waves, emanating from a cataclysmic collision of two black holes around 1.3 billion years ago, has rewritten our concept of the universe. The discovery, made by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO)—an international collaboration involving 90 universities, within which the […]

Collider Scope

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is truly awe-inspiring. Located on the outskirts of Geneva, Switzerland, it’s the world’s largest scientific instrument and most powerful probe of frontier physics. It collides protons with unprecedented energy, allowing researchers to observe particle behaviour at the smallest scale currently accessible to mankind. Beyond these sensational facts, however, the LHC […]
