Wo Menschen und Teilchen aufeinanderstoßen: Begegnungen am by Michael Krause

By Michael Krause

Begegnungen am CERN - Menschen, die die Geheimnisse des Universums entschlusseln/Michael Krause stellt sie uns vor
Eine >wissenschaftliche Sensation<, ein >historischer Meilenstein<, historisch so bedeutend wie die Mondlandung: Als Wissenschaftler des CERN im Juli 2012 die Existenz eines >Gottesteilchens<, das allen anderen Teilchen Masse verleiht, mit einer Wahrscheinlichkeit von mehr als 99,999 Prozent bestatigten, waren die Reaktionen uberwaltigend. Schlie?lich arbeiten die Forscher hier an nichts Geringerem als an der Entschlusselung der Geheimnisse des Universums. Die Suche nach dem Grund des Daseins und dem Ursprung aller Materie ist auch
das Thema dieses Buches.

Traume, Visionen, Forschungen: die Menschen stehen im Mittelpunkt Das >Gottesteilchen<, die Erforschung der >Dunklen Materie< und der >Dunklen Energie< und der starkste je gebaute Teilchenbeschleuniger der Welt - all das sind die spannenden Bestandteile des Buches. In den Mittelpunkt seiner Arbeit stellt Krause jedoch die Menschen am CERN, ihren Hintergrund, ihre Geschichte, ihre Arbeit, ihre Forschungen, Traume und Visionen - sie sind das Hauptthema des Buches. Krause verleiht den wissenschaftlichen Forschungen am CERN somit ein personliches Gesicht und schreibt das Portrait einer ganzen iteration von Wissenschaftlern, die in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten an der
sogenannten >Neuen Physik< gearbeitet haben. Eine Auswahl an Interviewpartnern von Michael Krause -- Top-Wissenschaftler am CERN, die einen gro?en Anteil am Nachweis des Higgs-Boson und damit zum Physik-Nobelpreis 2013 beigetragen haben.
Rolf-Dieter Heuer, als Generaldirektor des CERN dafur zustandig, dass das CERN mit all seinen verschiedenen Experimenten und den ten thousand Mitarbeitern, reibungslos funktioniert

Tejinder Virdee, Chefarchitekt des sogenannten "CMS-Experiments", eines "Allround-Apparats, der der Suche nach dem Higgs-Boson und Dunkler Materie" dient (Zitat aus dem Buch)

Lyndon Evans, Projektleiter fur den Bau des LHC (Large Hadron Collider), an dem die Kernexperimente stattfanden, um das Higgs-Boson nachzuweisen

Tara Shears, im Rahmen des sogenannten LHCb-Experiments hauptsachlich damit befasst, das Standardmodell der Teilchenphysik, zu dem das Higgs-Boson gehort, zu testen

John Ellis, der meistzitierte Physiker aller Zeiten, hat die Bezeichnung "Theory of every little thing" (Theorie fur alles) gepragt; er hat viel zum theoretischen Verstandnis des Standardmodells beigetragen, zu dem das Higgs-Boson gehort, und befasst sich auch mit Theorien jenseits des Standardmodells
