Long-sought decay of Higgs boson observed

Geneva, 28 August. Six years after its discovery, the Higgs boson has at last been observed decaying to fundamental particles known as bottom quarks. The finding, presented today at CERN by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), is consistent with the hypothesis that the all-pervading quantum field behind the Higgs boson also gives mass to the bottom quark. Both teams have submitted their results for publication today.

Piccoli animali, grandi effetti: gli invertebrati mantengono in funzione gli ecosistemi

Grandi e piccoli animali fitofagi – come cervi, marmotte, roditori, lumache o insetti – giocano un ruolo di primo piano nell’ecosistema prato. La loro assenza, specie quella degli invertebrati, causerebbe il crollo di reti e catene alimentari. Lo dimostrano i risultati di uno studio svolto dall’Istituto federale di ricerca WSL nel Parco nazionale svizzero.

The risk of thorium-based nuclear power would be acceptable

At the end of August, climate change and the future energy supply of Switzerland were among the topics of several keynote speeches at the Annual Meeting of the Swiss Physical Society (SPS) and the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics (CHIPP) in Lausanne. Maurice Bourquin, former professor of physics at University of Geneva, gave a keynote lecture about the ongoing transformation of the Swiss energy system. Professor Bourquin was also Rector of the University of Geneva (1999 - 2003) and President of the CERN Council (2001 - 2003). The 77 year-old scientist’s speech was titled: “Thorium-based systems – A new direction for nuclear waste elimination and energy production.” In the interview that follows, Professor Bourquin explains why he still believes in nuclear power.
