Next-Generation Particle Collider Could 'Unveil Universe's Mysteries' [Video]

Next-Generation Particle Collider Could 'Unveil Universe's Mysteries'

Next-Generation Particle Collider , Could 'Unveil Universe's Mysteries'. 'The Independent' reports that plans are being developed for a new particle collider that could shed light on some of the biggest mysteries of the Universe. Around the year 2040, the European Organization for Nuclear Research’s (CERN) Large Hadron Collider (LHC), will complete its mission. . The looming end of the program has left experts looking for what will replace it. According to early estimates, the Future Circular Collider (FCC) will cost an estimated $17 billion. . The collider will be installed in a tunnel with a circumference of about 56 miles between 100 and 400 meters below both French and Swiss territory. . Yielding much higher energy, the collider will smash particles together in the hopes of discoveries that could change our understanding of the Universe. On February 5, CERN announced that a successful mid-term feasibility assessment was able to identify the ideal location for infrastructure related to the project. The FCC will be an unprecedented instrument to explore the law of physics and of nature, at the smallest scales and at the highest energies, Professor Fabiola Gianotti, CERN’s director general, via 'The Independent'. [It] will allow us to address some of the outstanding questions in fundamental physics today in our knowledge of the fundamental constituents of matter and the structure and evolution of the Universe, Professor Fabiola Gianotti, CERN’s director general, via 'The Independent'. Researchers hope the new collider will help unravel the mystery surrounding , dark matter and dark energy. . 'The Independent' reports that if the FCC gains approval, the next-generation collider could be operational by the mid 2040s.

Solar Maximum Could Reveal Secrets of the Sun

Solar Maximum , Could Reveal Secrets of the , Sun. 'The Independent' reports that an upcoming period of increased solar activity could help scientists understand some lingering uncertainties about the Sun. The imminent "solar maximum" means that our star is currently spewing gamma rays, the highest energy form of light. Gamma ray numbers are far higher than scientists ever expected. . The intense stream of energetic solar emissions offers scientists a better understanding of gamma rays, including where they come from. We have found results that challenge our current understanding of the Sun and its environment, Elena Orlando, co-author of the study from the University of Trieste, INFN, and Stanford University, via 'The Independent'. We demonstrated a strong correlation of the asymmetry in the solar gamma-ray emission in coincidence with the solar magnetic field flip, which has revealed a possible link among solar astronomy, particle physics, and plasma physics, Elena Orlando, co-author of the study from the University of Trieste, INFN, and Stanford University, via 'The Independent'.

Currently, leading theories include that gamma rays are connected to solar flares and coronal mass ejections or potentially linked to changes in the Sun's magnetic configuration. 'The Independent' reports that a better understanding could improve the physics models used to predict solar activity. . Those models are used to make predictions that protect vital instruments in orbit around the planet. . Scientists have warned that increased solar activity has the potential to cause significant damage to Earth's technology and infrastructure. .

New Solar Panel Concept Could Help Drive the Transition to Renewable Energy [Video]

New Solar Panel Concept Could Help Drive the Transition to Renewable Energy

New Solar Panel , Concept Could Help Drive the , Transition to Renewable Energy. 'The Independent' reports that researchers believe a new renewable energy concept has the potential to reduce the payback period for solar panels to under five years. The new concept was developed by the University of Lisboa and the Military Academy in Portugal. The team's concept includes building solar farms alongside "shadow friendly" crops through a system known as agrivoltaics, otherwise referred to as Agri-PV. The concept could help the world's efforts to transition to renewable energy sources. According to researchers, the Agri-PV concept creates a , “union between agricultural and energy productions.”. This union could generate more value than solar farms or agricultural production alone. 'The Independent' reports that the concept has gained feasability through the decreasing cost of solar panels and the growing need for new food and energy production. . 'The Independent' reports that the concept has gained feasability through the decreasing cost of solar panels and the growing need for new food and energy production. . These projects, besides the fact they increase the production of green energy and reduce the consumption of non-renewable energy sources, also decrease the amount of CO2 released to the atmosphere, Study authors, via 'The Independent'. The projects’ payback periods are around four-to-five years and it is concluded that Agri-PV is worth more than only PV or only agriculture productions, Study authors, via 'The Independent'. The team's concept was detailed in a paper published in the journal 'Energy for Sustainable Development.'
