2013 Prediction: Physics Enters A New Era

Posted in Science on 1st Jan, 2013 06:03 PM by AlexMuller

Science and technology have utterly transformed human life in the past few generations, and forecasts of the future used to be measured in decades. But big changes arrive faster and faster these days. So here we’ve shifted our forecast to the near-term, because we’re right on the verge of some extraordinary stuff. These are the trends and events to watch out for in 2013.  


On July 4, 2012, a panel of scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva announced the discovery of a new particle, the long-anticipated Higgs boson (or something very much like it). The Higgs is the final piece of the Standard Model of particle physics, a theory that accounts for everything we experience in our lives, from rocks to puppies to stars and planets. After decades of searching and billions of dollars, the Higgs discovery marked the end of one era and the beginning of another, which scientists will embark upon in 2013.

If the previous era was about understanding the physics of everyday stuff, the next will be dominated by the attempt to grasp more elusive realms, including one of the most mysterious of all: dark matter. Astronomers have verified that the universe has about five times more matter than we can account for with the “ordinary” particles we’ve discovered here on Earth. The rest is dark matter. Physicists haven’t observed it directly yet, but they’re getting much closer.

Several different detectors are currently searching for dark matter underground, conducting experiments designed to sense a dark matter particle scattering off the nucleus of an ordinary atom. A couple of them have already yielded tantalizing evidence—not enough to convince most physicists, but enough to get people excited. The LUX detector, recently installed in a South Dakota mine, should prove the most sensitive one yet when it begins collecting data in 2013.

Dec05 One thing I would like to comment on is that wehsgtlois system fast is possible by the proper diet and exercise. A person's size not just affects appearance, but also the actual quality of life. Self-esteem, melancholy, health risks, in addition to physical abilities are afflicted in fat gain. It is possible to make everything right and still gain. In such a circumstance, a medical problem may be the offender. While an excessive amount food rather than enough workout are usually the culprit, common medical ailments and widespread prescriptions might greatly help to increase size. Many thanks for your post right here. Reply
