CERN has contributed 10,000 computer cores from its main data center to the Folding@home project becoming the 87th biggest contributor. The project now has almost 2.5 exaFLOPS of computing power.
Researchers have trained an artificial neural network to identify atypical and ephemeral experimental signatures resulting from proton-proton collisions inside the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
Workers have just connected the LHC to its successor, the High-Luminosity LHC. However, the end of Long Shutdown 2 has been extended to May 2021 and Run 3 has been extended by one year to 2024.
Leveraging the downtime for the Large Hadron Collider, the general public will be able to explore the laboratory and partake in over 150 activities planned by CERN on 14 and 15 September.
This week an incredibly well-preserved nodosaur fossil was unveiled, a new accelerator was launched at CERN, SpaceX tested a Falcon Heavy rocket, and Microsoft Research revealed Project Emma.
SpaceX has launched its first rocket carrying a classified military payload for the US, an astronomer suggests we should search for extinct alien life in our solar system, and the LHC has restarted.
