Astronaut’s radiation study will be critical for Mars mission
As space exploration inches closer to Mars, research into space radiation will become increasingly critical, says ESA astronaut Christer Fuglesang, who was introduced yesterday as the new head of the Aerospace Engineering master’s programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
Nobel stars light up AlbaNova
They were outsiders in the world of quantum field theory 40 years ago. But on Saturday Peter Higgs and François Englert were greeted like rock stars when they arrived at AlbaNova University Center.
KTH Physicists Cheer Higgs Discovery
Particle physicists at KTH were jubilant following Wednesday’s announcement that the international research team working with the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland had discovered nearly indisputable evidence of the existence of the elusive Higgs boson. First described theoretically in 1964, the Higgs is seen as the last major piece of the physics puzzle known as the Standard Model. “Everyone in our group is incredibly excited that our work has contributed to this historic discovery,” says researcher Bengt Lund-Jensen.
Higgs boson discovery involved KTH researcher
The discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN laboratory involved a member of the research group in particle and astroparticle physics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
Physics prize both expected, and unexpected
Particle physicists at KTH had nearly given up hope that the discovery of mass within the universe's smallest components, neutrinos, would be recognized with a Nobel Prize.
