Higgs Boson, Fabiola Gianotti (CERN): “Ready for a new stage. The accelerator will have a higher capacity to explore the unknown”

Ten years ago I discovered the unscientific world Higgs boson Thanks to CERN’s exciting proof that this particle (was worth newbiesPeter Higgs and François Englert, Nobel Prize laureates in physics were already there. A fundamental discovery thanks to the Large Hadron Collider, the large particle accelerator installed at CERN in Geneva.

Since then, advances in characterizing their properties have “allowed physicists to do just that Great strides in our understanding of the universeAs CERN notes, which today celebrates the anniversary of one of the discoveries that changed the course of science. Fabiola Gianotti, CERN General Manager and Project Leader (“Spokesperson”) recalls the Atlas experience at the time of its discovery, in an interview with Repubblica: “It was like attending a rock concert, the enthusiasm and the passion were very high.” “The Higgs boson is a special particle, linked to very important open questions in fundamental physics, Which includes the evolution of the universe in the past and the future And the existence of new high-energy physics. It could also allow us to detect dark matter. It is at the same time a very precise microscope and a very powerful telescope.”

“The discovery of the Higgs boson was a milestone in particle physics. It marked the end of a decade-long expedition and the beginning of a new era of studies on this very special particle. I remember with emotion the day of the announcement, A day of immense happiness for the particle physics community around the worldAnd to all the people who have worked tirelessly for decades to make this discovery possible,” adds the Italian scientist.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva is ready to enter a new phase, Run 3, with collisions at an energy never recorded, paving the way for new discoveries. Tomorrow July 5th at 4 pm live On social networks CernThe European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced that the world’s most powerful particle accelerator will enter its third stage with a collision energy of 13.6 trillion electronvolts. “We will have a much higher ability to explore the unknownGianotti explains.

Thanks to the increased collision energy and the numerous interventions made, with the integration of new systems of detectors and new IT infrastructure, the LHC experiments will be able to ensure unprecedented accuracy and”Unparalleled possibilities for discoveryStarting tomorrow, the LHC will operate continuously for nearly four years and particle physicists expect to collect twice the data they have so far. The opening of a new physics “season” for the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), with a promising and broad scientific programme.
