New era of research at the Large Hadron Collider

Today scientists at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the European research facility, started recording data from the highest-energy particle collisions ever achieved on Earth. This new proton collision data, the first recorded since 2012, will enable an international collaboration of researchers that includes more than 1,700 physicists to study the Higgs boson, search for dark matter and develop a more complete understanding of the laws of nature. Princeton University researchers are significantly involved in the particle detector known as the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS). James Olsen, professor of physics and a member of the High Energy Experimentgroup at Princeton,…

This vulnerability was previously thought to last a month or two, however, a new study shows that children may in fact live in the immunological shadow of measles for up to three years, leaving them highly susceptible to a host of other deadly diseases. Published in the journal Science, the study, led by researchers from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, provides epidemiologic evidence that measles may throw the body into a much…
