Re: New LHC Results Hint At New Physics, But Are We Crying W

If you hear little voices in your head, you should seek professional help. No need to get help when you have a 'concience'. conscience ˈkɒnʃ(ə)ns/ noun a person's moral sense of right and wrong, viewed as acting as a guide to one's behaviour. "he had a guilty conscience about his desires" synonyms:...

Oh, but I am not a troll, I am more like that little voice in your head asking the question is it actually meaningful what I am working on, or should I perhaps do something more useful with my precious time here on this wonderful planet Earth.

Re: New LHC Results Hint At New Physics, But Are We Crying W

No, the proper way to do science. Oh man, you can buy at Amazon a Cloud Chamber kit for $38 that has more energy than the particle-collisions at the LHC: https://www.amazon.com/CL-Cloud-Chamber-Kit/dp/B0168SCCJO The standard model was build with what we got out of those already in the 1960's, the H...

Re: New LHC Results Hint At New Physics, But Are We Crying W

The combined significance is much larger than the significance of the individual measurements.
The struggle to squeeze one last drop out of the experiment.

New LHC Results Hint At New Physics, But Are We Crying Wolf?

New (p)article … and the view of an advocate vs a realist: A few weeks ago, famed physicist (and supersymmetry-advocate) John Ellis asked the question, "Where is Particle Physics going?" Unless experiments can generate new, unexpected results, the answer is likely to be "nowhere new; nowhere good" f...

US successfully tests new nuclear gravity bom

Just a reminder that nuclear science also has its darkside. :axe:
… the US National Nuclear Security Administration announced the successful field test of the modernized gravity nuclear bomb in Nevada.

And that forum has a thread already. Posted nearly a week earlier than this thread in the wrong forum.
Yep, double-post, this one may be removed, my bad, I overlooked Draph's entry. :oops:

Beter would be the US has a new senator, can be the senator of NY.

Sure now I'm nitpicking. :mrgreen:

Re: The Large Hadron Collider Just Got a Crucial Upgrade

If New York gets a new major, do you write "the US got a new president"? That's a bad example, because a mayor and a president are different words, an upgrade can happen for both the accelerator and the detector. See it like this, if NY get's at new skyscraper, you could write "the US gets a new sk...

Re: The Large Hadron Collider Just Got a Crucial Upgrade

This is not the Large Hadron Collider. It is the CMS experiment, … I don't see the problem, LHC is the general term for the project (for the public) of which CMS is a part of. Sure, if you want to nitpick … I guess that's what you have to do to keep yourself busy when there is no longer anything to...

The Large Hadron Collider Just Got a Crucial Upgrade

"The upgrade, which has been compared to a heart transplant,
was made to the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment …"

Re: Precision electroweak physics by ATLAS

Can you just go somewhere else if you don't want to contribute anything? Uh, you made your contribution, I expressed an opinion, isn't that how this thing works, chatting about science … anyone can join in. BTW I can understand that refining the measurement is an achievement, but on a scientific le...

Re: Precision electroweak physics by ATLAS

The W electroweak gauge boson was discovered in 1983 at the CERN SPS collider. Although the properties of the W boson have been studied for more than 30 years, precise measurement of its mass remains a major challenge. So now over more than 30 years of doing 'research' they came up with these resul...
