In the female combined race at Bansko in Bulgaria Anna Fenninger was first and Tina Maze second. They are fighting for the World Cup, with Tina still leading but Anna closing in. Anna is a female Stenmark. Tomorrow another SuperG.

The graviton is not a particle, but a force carrier, like the photon, the W and Z intermediate vector bosons and the Higgs boson, so it has no antiparticle.
Our Le Scienze magazine, the Italian version of Scientific American, has an article which deals not only with the Higgs boson but also with
the Majorana heavy neutrinos, which should be their own antiparticles and maybe solve the dark matter mystery.
I've taken five weeks of lessons on the Higgs field from Edinburgh University, also given by Peter Higgs and I am beginning to understand the physics behind the spontaneous symmetry breaking (J.Goldstone, 1961, forgotten by the Nobel committee) which produces the massive Higgs boson (125 GeV).
Next week they shall cover the experiments done at LHC. I should be in a better condition to understand, since I am simulating them in vLHC@home and Atlas@home.

We have the Marcialonga in Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa (Dolomiti) at the end of January. It is run by 8000 people, many of them from Norway and Sweden. It is a 72 km race, but this year it was shortened to 42 km because of lack of snow.
I have seen it at Pozza di Fassa once.

The most important evidence in favor of a Big Bang is the Cosmic Microwave Background, discovered by two telecommunication engineers, A.A.Penzias and R.W. Wilson (not astronomers) at the Bell Laboratories in 1964.It had been predicted by Leo Szilard in the Thirties but never measured by astronomers.

We have only 2 bronze medals. In the 50 km race our top man will be Giorgio di Centa, aged 42. He is the brother of the great Manuela di Centa.

I nostri TV men dicono che le norvegesi sono arrabbiatissime per la figura di ieri e che domani nella staffetta 4x5 femminile andranno forte.

Scusi. Che cosa รจ "arrabbiatissime"?

Very mad.

In my opinion the only telescopes which must go in space are the X-ray and. gamma-ray telescopes. Optical telescopes with 30 meter disk diameter (even with multiple disks) are being built in Chile at Cerro Paranal by ESO and in Hawaii atop Mauna Kea by an American consortium which includes also Berkeley. With the help of the laser technique pioneered by Claire Max their resolving power with adaptive optics is equal to that of the space telescopes and their light gathering power is much greater.

Probably they had the wrong wax. This happens frequently when the weather changes and the skis were prepared before the change.

Sono in ritardo, ma sembra che Charlotte Kalla abbia vinto la 10 km a tecnica libera sotto una fitta nevicata.
Seconda una aaericana (Jessica Diggins) e terza un'altra americana (Caitlin Gregg).
Brave tutte e tre. Le norvegesi KO.

Tonight the sky is clear and I can see Venus and Mars with my 7x50 Yashica binoculars.

There is also a crescent Moon, but that is more common.
