CMS detector, CERN Featured 6 Jan 2006 Print

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

Snowball Earth Featured 6 Jan 2006 Print

Snowball Earth

Snowball Earth. Computer artwork of the Earth frozen in snow and ice some 590 million years ago. The continents are in different positions due to tectonic plate movements. One theory suggests that an unusual amount of equatorial land disturbed the carbon cycle. This land was free of ice, and so large amounts of carbonate rock could form as rain washed carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide helps keep Earth warm by a natural greenhouse effect, and as levels fell Earth cooled and runaway glaciation formed kilometre-thick global sea ice that lasted millions of years. As the continents moved away from the equator, and as volcanoes restored the carbon dioxide, a warm climate was restored. Most life was killed, but the survivors exploded in evolutionary diversity
