From Geneva to Gran Sasso in 2.5 milliseconds!

Geneva, 16 December. CERN1 is collaborating with the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) in Italy to send a beam of neutrinos through the earth, under the mountains from Geneva in Switzerland to the Gran Sasso laboratory in central Italy, 730 km away. The experiments will shed light on the possibility that neutrinos have mass and exhibit the exotic property of transforming from one kind into another. The go-ahead for the CERN Neutrinos to Gran Sasso Facility was given at the CERN Council Meeting on Friday 17th December following approval of the project by INFN.

Basic Research Instead of Weapon Technology: CERN Finalizes Contracts with ISTC

Geneva, 22 November 1999. On Monday, 22 November, major collaboration contracts were finalized between CERN1 and the ISTC, the International Science and Technology Centre, which has its headquarters in Moscow. These contracts, worth more than 12 million Swiss Francs, are a large step forward in the cooperation between these two institutions. The agreement, which almost doubles the financial support for the ISTC Partner Project, will result in new technical equipment for CERN's latest project, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
