May 2012 issue of symmetry available
We’ve done it again. The May issue of symmetry is now available online.
In this issue, symmetry goes hunting for dark matter with BaBar, searching for light dark photons and dark Higgs bosons in data originally taken to explain a completely different mystery.
We take you into the world of physicist and famous conference-organizer Jean Tran Thanh Van, whose humanitarian efforts, combined with his vision of a cohesive international particle physics community, have led him around the world and back to his home country of Vietnam.
Symmetry also explores the High Temperature Material Laboratory at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where engineers from John Deere and General Motors evaluate their products to improve durability and efficiency; visits Paris’ Trocadéro science exhibition, where science enthusiasts can see—and even control—a real electron accelerator; and introduces the Twinkie of particle physics.
