Japanese high-energy physics facilities hit by the earthquake
from The Guardian
Two major particle physics labs are a couple of hundred kilometers south of Sendai, Japan. The earthquake struck just before a seminar to announce the first T2K neutrino results. The
focuses on long baseline neutrino oscillation, and attempts to measure the third type of neutrino oscillation. In the future,
upgrades to T2K
could lead to measuring the CP violation and could aid the search for an explanation as to why we don't see equal amounts of matter and antimatter. The Canadian T2K collaboration has
of the lab. Of course our thoughts are with all affected by this disaster.
