… we failed in getting a LEGO model of LHC experiments through the
LEGO Ideas review.
After failing with my
mini ATLAS model in 2014, yesterday LEGO finally rejected Nathan Readioff’s LHC micro models as well. Looks like we have to come up with yet another idea/design to finally reach our goal ;)
We’re slowly getting ready for the
Open Day in Garching, taking place on Saturday, 22 October 2016.
Visit us between 11 am and 6 pm or join our free screening of ‘
Particle Fever‘ at 6 pm.
We’ll have a great programme, including a BYOPD event, presentations of live events and data from CERN, a cosmic-ray detector, the large ATLAS LEGO model and more …

I’m on my way to
ICHEP2016 in Chicago.
Looking forward to a great conference in a great city.
I have good memories of both:
ICHEP2012 in Melbourne and Chicago, as a memorable start of a road-trip to New York.
I’ll have both
physics (long-lived particles) and outreach (BYOPD) contributions for this year’s conference … let’s see how it goes :)
Tickets booked, hotel booked, pieces sent,
adds out, registration open … now I just have to wait a few more weeks and off I go to the Sydney Science Festival.
