It’s all a bit in the middle of nowhere, but it’s seemingly really beautiful landscape in the Black Hills and the Badlands. Unfortunately, I ain’t got no time to see it all, or even a small part for that sake.
Last week I had the pleasure to get one minute of private air time on the George Lamb Show to talk about LEGO and the LHC.
Here’s the link to the podcast (itunes) of the show, which actually turned out to be a LHC special, also featuring ATLAS colleague Clara Nellist.
My part starts at about 01:01:30 (ten minutes to the end).
Earlier today the Large Hadron Collider, for the first time ever, reached collisions at 13 TeV centre-of-mass energy.
We’re not yet fully back in physics operation, but only about two weeks away (according to the current schedule).
It’s getting more and more exciting and more and more busy these days :)
Here’s a few images of the LHC configuration and events in ATLAS, from earlier today.
