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.

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...

Re: TED - How we explore unanswered questions in physics

This is not "particles and cosmic rays". The introduction is about the attempts to unify quantum mechanics and general relativity, and the bump that appeared in 2015 could have been a graviton - a first experimental hint how to combine those two. That wouldn't have been just another particle, it wo...

TED - How we explore unanswered questions in physics

So weird this talk. http://www.ted.com/talks/james_beacham_how_we_explore_unanswered_questions_in_physics Particles and Cosmic rays have been detected for more than 100 years and he talks like we have just discovered a new planet. Fact is that we have been already going through the fine sand for dec...
