92 Physicists bring together detector and accelerator to explore 'new physics' beyond the Standard Model
To study some of the tiniest particles in the universe, an international band of over 750 physicists from 23 countries is building a massive instrument. The instrument will smash subatomic particles together and analyze the debris to look for signs of as-yet-unseen particles predicted to be fundamental to the workings of the universe. phys.org/news/2017-04-physi...
91 The world's fastest film camera: when light practically stands still
Forget high-speed cameras capturing 100 000 images per second. A research group at Lund University in Sweden has developed a camera that can film at a rate equivalent to five trillion images per second, or events as short as 0.2 trillionths of a second. This is faster than has previously been possible. phys.org/news/2017-04-world...
