In the Summer of 2012 Scientists announced with high confidence that they had identified the Higgs Boson subatomic particle.
Not surprisingly illustrations of what is called the /God Particle/ closely resemble the Flying Spaghetti Monster. I shall leave the reader to draw the inevitable conclusion. RAmen.
In homage to this discovery Marcus and Agata have for some time been on the waiting list to visit CERN and learn more about Colliders and sub atomic particle theory. We can now reveal that we have had an introduction
This year CERN celebrates it's 60th birthday
Part of a small group
The Synchro Cyclotron
Colliders contain common components and we were explained the basics by an in depth talk about the Synchro Cyclotron shown above.
Besides an informative video that overlays the actual Cyclotron our Physicist guide encouraged us to ask any question to clarify our understanding.
There are multiple Colliders at CERN
The Collider mural
Collider detector building blocks
Talk of Boson
Particle discovery at the Atlas collider displaying the common components to all colliders
We thoroughly enjoyed our Physics based tour which was made professionally and our Physicist guide was a great source of technical information.
CERN at 60
