Almost immediately after its inauguration in 1985 the Birla technological know-how Centre, Hyderabad, India, all started a chain of lectures through Nobel Laureates and different scientists of foreign renown, totally on Physics and Astronomy. the current assortment regularly involves lectures on frontier themes. The transcript of every lecture is preceded by means of a quick biography of the Nobel Laureate/Scientist in query. The lectures are geared toward a large non-specialist yet better knowledgeable viewers.

Well some time ago I sprained my left wrist. It was painful so I went to my doctor. He took X-rays and found it was not broken and was just a severe sprain. Then he dismissed me. ” I was flabbergasted. ” Now I will return to my subject. George Gamow, the great cosmologist, argued that the universe erupted in a gigantic primeval fireball from an initial state of very high temperature and density. Fred Hoyle termed it the “Big Bang,” somewhat in derision, since he believed in a steady state model with no origin and no ending.

Well, more or less. But you know how it is. When you are ill, you go to your doctor. He diagnoses your problem, prescribes treatment and you do what he tells you. He is the expert. Well some time ago I sprained my left wrist. It was painful so I went to my doctor. He took X-rays and found it was not broken and was just a severe sprain. Then he dismissed me. ” I was flabbergasted. ” Now I will return to my subject. George Gamow, the great cosmologist, argued that the universe erupted in a gigantic primeval fireball from an initial state of very high temperature and density.

As accelerators get larger this effect starts to limit their performance. To avoid this problem, we nowadays usually observe collisions between two particles that have both been accelerated and that make head-on collisions (Fig. 5). Since they have opposite momentum before the collision, the total momentum is zero and momentum conservation does not require that any of the interaction products are accelerated much. So the entire incoming energy can be used for the interaction. We call such machines colliders (although, of course, the old “fixed-target” machines also produced collisions).
