Congratulations on the direct detection of gravitational waves
Félicitations pour la toute première détection directe d’ondes gravitationnelles
/
This week saw the announcement of an extraordinary physics result: the first direct detection of gravitational waves by the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, which includes the GEO team, and the Virgo Collaboration, using the twin Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors located in Livingston, Louisiana, and Hanford, Washington, USA.   Albert Einstein predicted gravitational waves in a paper published 100 years ago in 1916. [...]

Latest news from the YETS: On the home straight, handover to operations in sight
Dernières nouvelles du YETS : dernière ligne droite avant la reprise de l’exploitation
/ Antonella Del Rosso
With the PS Booster already in its hardware commissioning phase and the PS being handed over to the operations teams this week, the injector chain is almost ready for the restart of the LHC run, planned for the end of March.   After an intense maintenance campaign over the last few weeks, the PS is now being cleaned and prepared for commissioning. [...]

AWAKE’s plasma cell arrives at its destination
La cellule plasma d’AWAKE arrive à destination
/ Antonella Del Rosso
By harnessing the power of wakefields generated by a proton beam in a plasma cell, the AWAKE project aims to produce accelerator gradients hundreds of times higher than those achieved in current machines. Far from being just a dream, the AWAKE tunnel is progressively being filled with its vital components. [...]

When ideas grow up
Quand les idées prennent corps
/ Stefania Pandolfi
Challenge: to use basic-research technologies to enhance mobility. A group of Finnish students accepted this challenge in 2014 and now they have come back to CERN’s IdeaSquare to develop their idea: a smart hip protector to protect elderly people in the event of a fall [...]

Augmented reality for improved safety
La réalité augmentée au service de la sécurité
/ Stefania Pandolfi
Sometimes, CERN experts have to operate in low visibility conditions or in the presence of possible hazards. Minimising the duration of the operation and reducing the risk of errors is therefore crucial to ensuring the safety of personnel [...]

Computer Security: I know where you have been… since forever!
Sécurité informatique : je connais le moindre de vos déplacements... depuis toujours !
/ Stefan Lueders, Computer Security Team
OK, the “forever” has to be taken with a pinch of salt. But generally speaking, if you were to pass near my office carrying your smartphone, I would be able to find out. [...]

The discovery uncovered
La découverte dévoilée
/ Antonella Del Rosso
Almost exactly one hundred years after the publication of Einstein’s paper on General Relativity, the LIGO and Virgo collaborations have published a paper in which they show a gravitational signal emitted by the merger of two black holes. The signal has been observed with 5-sigma accuracy and is the first direct observation of gravitational waves [...]
