Your understanding of the Universe is about to change...

Attention Science Lovers – Hangout at the Large Hadron Collider

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a gigantic scientific instrument near Geneva, where it spans the border between Switzerland and France, about 100 m (or 300 feet) underground. It is a particle accelerator used by physicists to study the smallest known particles – the fundamental building blocks of all things. The Compact Muon Solenoid (or CMS) is one of the LHC's experiments, and is furthering our understanding of particle physics, from the minuscule world deep within atoms to the vastness of the Universe.

Come join us on an exclusive Google+ Hangout and visit the CMS underground experimental cavern – off-limits to most of the world. Have a virtual visit with with senior physicist Albert De Roeck. Learn more about the magical world of physics and ask us your questions.

Join us for the deepest ever Google+ Hangout!
