Science Odyssey: A Year Later, the Large Hadron Collider is Still Smashing!
By Clay Farris Naff
When it first fired up, the Large Hadron Collider was the object of both outlandish fears and ridicule. Now, after a year of nearly continuous operation, the LHC is producing results. We hear from two high-energy-particle physicists work work on various aspects of the LHC project.
In Part 1, Ken Bloom of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln tells us that the best news to date is how well the particle collider is working.
In Part 2, Jim Brau (at left) of the University of Oregon describes some of the experimental results to date.
