CMS detector, CERN Featured 6 Jan 2006 Image

CMS detector, CERN

CMS detector. Part of the CMS (compact muon solenoid) detector at CERN (the European particle physics laboratory) near Geneva, Switzerland. The detector will be placed around the large hadron collider (LHC), CERN's highest energy particle accelerator. Proton beams will be accelerated and collided head on in the LHC, and the CMS will detect the resultant particles. The main goal of the experiment is the discovery of the Higgs boson, an elementary particle predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics, but yet to be directly detected (as of 2006). A pilot run of the LHC is scheduled for summer 2007

Saint Christopher carrying Christ Child Featured 6 Jan 2006 Image

Saint Christopher carrying Christ Child

St Christopher and Christ Child, coloured artwork after a 16th-century woodcut by the German artist Albrecht Durer (1471-1528). The woodcut, dated to 1525, shows Saint Christopher carrying the Christ Child across a river. A hermit in the background is carrying a lamp. The date includes Durer's identifying AD monogram. Much of Durer's artwork depicted religious scenes, often as a series of pictures. He did much to introduce the Renaissance style of art to northern Europe. He travelled to Italy in 1494 and 1505, to study the new art. He was one of the first to study and use perspective, and his mathematical rigour meant his works were among the best of the time. Original woodcut from The Complete Woodcuts of Albrecht Durer (W. Kurth, 1936)
