CERN

IMG_6317.jpgCERN is, “the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, is a European research organization that operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world”. Their most famous experiment is the large hadron collider. Today, I was lucky enough to be granted a tour from one of the physicists there.

IMG_6322.jpgWe got to see the ATLAS program where they are attempting to, “map the secrets of the universe”. IMG_6315.jpgMy favorite part of the tour was all the special effects. The picture above is of the waiting area. We also got to see a movie about their first experiment that was projected onto their old machinery. IMG_6339.jpgIt took place in a room that was just reopened due to radioactivity. Overall really interesting.
