here. In it he mentions experiments will be run at the LHC regarding Quantum Chromodynamics, for which he co-won the 2004 Nobel Prize in Physics, as the article states.
Well, of course there will be QCD experiments run at the LHC.
QCD is all about the inside of the Atomic Nucleus, about the inside of Protons and Neutrons themselves, about Quarks and the Strong Force and their force bosons: Gluons. You don't smash protons into protons withOUT learning much about QCD. Indeed, proton train wrecks are how we gained the data that provided QCD to be developed in the first place.
As an aside, here's a big shoutout to Ernest Rutherford. One hundred years ago this year he discovered the Atomic Nucleus via experimentation. Awesome work.
Also from the interview, something interesting and of note, is a novel Wilczek is working on his spare time regarding four people who discover something Nobel Prize-winning worthy, but Alfred Nobel's will (I think it was Nobel's will, if not it's just policy) allows for only three individual winners for any one award.
Although the article doesn't mention it, could that reflect on Frank's award? Although he won the 2004 NPP along with David Gross and my Slovak-American cousin Hugh David Politzer, I'm curious if any of you know how close Gerardus 't Hooft and Sid Coleman were considered for the same award. Thanks in advance.
And darn it if that article doesn't make me want to explore the latest work in Axions. How's that going?
