Geneva, 30 April 2009. The 53rd and final replacement magnet for CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was lowered into the accelerator's tunnel today, marking the end of repair work above ground following the incident in September last year that brought LHC operations to a halt
Embracing the opportunity presented by the release of the major motion picture, "Angels and Demons," world renowned physicists Rolf-Dieter Heuer, Leon Lederman and Boris Kayser discuss the real science of CERN, the LHC, antimatter and the excitement of particle physics.
