The hangout with CERN from June 12th 2014.

Join CERN physicists to find out the latest results from the Large Hadron Collider, featuring Standard Model Physics and Beyond, the Higgs Boson, Supersymmetry and Heavy Ion Physics.

Our host, LHCb physicist Tara Shears is joined by ATLAS physicist Steven Goldfarb. LHCb physicist Patrick Koppenburg joins from the LHCb experimental cavern roughly 100 metres underground, while CMS physicist Seth Zenz monitors social media, and Kate Kahle and Achintya Rao handle production.
Hang Out with CERN: All About SUSY

On 4th July 2012, CERN announced the discovery of a new boson later confirmed to be “a Higgs boson”, but which one? Is it the Higgs boson predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics or one of the five Higgs bosons associated with “supersymmetry”, a principle that attempts to fix the few remaining problems of the Standard Model?

In this week’s hangout, theoretical physicist John Ellis (pictured in the banner above) joins experimental physicists to talk about supersymmetry, also known as “SUSY”. What is it, why, and how does it link with the Higgs boson?

Join this “Hangout with CERN” broadcast live on Thursday 20 June at 17:00 CEST, on CERN’s Google+ and YouTube pages, with a recording later available on YouTube.

Hangout with CERN: Going pear-shaped

In this week’s hangout we’re joined by scientists from the ISOLDE facility at CERN to find out their latest news of pear-shaped atomic nuclei and a fundamental property of the rarest element on Earth. Host ATLAS physicist Steven Goldfarb is joined by Bruce Marsh and Valentine Fedosseev, in the ISOLDE visitor room are Liam Gaffney, KU Leuven, Thomas Cocolios, University of Manchester and Fredrik Wenander, CERN; Mark Huyse connecting from KU Leuven, with Achintya Rao from the CMS experiment monitoring social media.
