After a one hour flight and an even longer boat trip from the airport to my hotel / the venue, I finally arrived in Venice yesterday. To be precise, it’s on Lido (long strip of land in the background above) and (sadly) it’s not for holidays, but this year’s EPS HEP conference, which started today.
Today I had another ‘Build Your Own Particle Detector’ event, for the first time at the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich. With about 50 participants to the contest and tons of chats within the seven-hour event, not a bad day ;)
All designs can be found on the BYOPD event page.
This week yet another particle physics related song was released. American singer-songwriter Howie Day made a cover of one of his songs at CERN.
And just for completeness, I added a few other CERN related songs/classics.
