Quotes

"With AMS and with the LHC to restart in the near future at energies never reached before, we are living in very exciting times for particle physics as both instruments are pushing boundaries of physics,” said CERN Director-General Rolf Heuer."
...of the electrons emitted by the gallium-arsenide crystal," said Dreiling, a postdoctoral re assistant who received her doctorate from UNL in May. "We are able to reverse the spin-polarization of the electrons just by reversing the circular polarization of the light."
(More from World Science Festival: ) If the universe was going to fall to that lower energy state, "it would have done that in the very early universe, which was a very energetic time; the energy from inflation would have kicked us into the other vacuum in the tiniest fraction of a second" Mack says
She continues: "Every day brings the comet closer to the sun and makes it more active."
