Hangout With Cern: Lhc And The Grid

  1. Feb 14, 2013 #1
    Hangout With CERN: LHC and the Grid - Big data, big questions
    Public · By CERN

    usually every thursday 5:00pm in UTC+01



    Last week we showed you how global computing helps CERN store, distribute and analysis around 25 Petabytes (25 million Gigabytes) of data generated per year from the Large Hadron Collider. This week we'll talk more about big data, and answer more of your big questions.

    Join IT experts from CERN and the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) project - a global collaboration of more than 170 computing centres in 36 countries.

    This "Hangout with CERN" is broadcast live on Thursday 14 February at 17:00 CET, on CERN's Google+ and YouTube pages, with a recording later available on YouTube.

    You can post questions in advance in the comments below or on Twitter to @CERN with the hashtag #askCERN. We'll pick the best ones to answer and we may even invite you to participate in the live hangout!

    Get a taste of the Grid by watching this Big Data video from Symmetry magazine http://www.symmetrymagazine.org/ http://www.facebook.com/symmetrymagazine.

    The Large Hadron Collider has now entered its first long shutdown. But why? Why stop a machine that is working so well?

    Oh wow, I didn't know the LHC was shutting down for so long.

    What is the latest on the new particle discovered last year at CERN? In this Hangout with CERN, we find out what physicists are presenting at this week's Moriond conference in Italy. The new particle is looking more and more like a Higgs boson, but what do we know so far and what do we still need to know?
