A particle of some kind first hinted at in December 2015 might’ve just been a statistical fluke. Where does this leave the world of particle physics?
In the guise of “national interest”, Brazil has “deported” the CERN scientist to France, where he has been placed under house arrest.
This year is when we might discover another foundational piece of our origins or when we realise the breadth of the epistemic emptiness that stretches between ourselves and the physics that made us.
A brilliant scientist from CERN, accused of association with a terrorist group in 2009 and jailed in France before being freed, tells his story as he is hounded out of Brazil where he has lived since May 2013.
The Large Hadron Collider, a particle-smasher in Europe, is revving up to achieve its first stable collisions of protons today at the highest energy ever: 13 TeV
