Did you guess it? The image shows sextupole magnets that were assembled in Cyprus and Pakistan. These magnets have arrived at CERN for testing before being shipped to the SESAME light source in Jordan. They are part of the CESSAMag project, find out more: http://cern.ch/go/8BTt

Congratulations to +Franc Schiphorst, the first to get the correct answer to Friday’s post.

Via +ALICE Experiment

Flying into an LHC experiment: watch this exclusive aerial video sequence filmed flying a drone over the ALICE experimental site and all the way down the cavern shaft 60m underground.

Did you guess it? The image shows a “phantom”, a tool to simulate a therapy’s response by mimicking the conditions of the human body. This was designed within the EU-funded project “ENTERVISION” to improve digital medical imaging for radiotherapy to treat cancer, read more: http://cern.ch/go/8rWh.

Congratulations to Edgar Games e Radio Amador, the first to get the correct answer to Friday’s post.

Want your very own miniature LHC?

Then VOTE NOW for ‪#‎LHCLego‬: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/94885

A PhD student working on the ATLAS experiment at CERN has created a replica of the Large Hadron Collider using Lego building blocks. It now needs 10,000 votes on the Lego Ideas website to qualify for the Lego Review, which decides if projects become new Lego products, read more: http://cern.ch/go/b7XZ

The image shows a computer simulation of the miniature Lego LHC, complete with four detectors (+ALICE Experiment +ATLAS Experiment +CMS Experiment and +LHCb Experiment) connected with blue dipole magnets. Image credit: Nathan Readioff. You can build your own miniature LHC now! Instruction manuals and part lists are available on the “Build your own particle detector" website: http://build-your-own-particle-detector.org/models/lhc-micro-models

Story
Tagline
Exploring the frontiers of knowledge
Introduction
CERN is a truly unique organisation. A genuine collaboration between countries, universities and scientists, driven not by profit margins, but by a commitment to create and share knowledge.

People here are part of immense scientific discoveries, answering some of life’s most complex questions and pushing the boundaries of understanding. Experts from every field come here to share in this ambition and the nature of this collaborative, international community creates a genuine atmosphere of trust. People are free to work creatively and to trust in, and rely on, their colleagues across the organisation.

History’s being made here – and the excitement is tangible, inspiring, overwhelming at times. It is the only place in the world that you can do this work in this way!

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the Universe is made of and how it works. At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter, the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of Nature.

The instruments used at CERN are particle accelerators and detectors. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before they are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions.

Founded in 1954, the CERN Laboratory sits astride the Franco–Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe’s first joint ventures and now has 21 Member States.
