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.
Yesterday, ATLAS recorded its first 2017 events during stable beams conditions and thereby marked the beginning of physics data taking for this year, as was reported on ATLAS’ web site. Looking forward to another exciting year …
Today it’s exactly twelve years that I have my CERN account :)
I first got it on 8 March 2005 when starting my internship in the high-energy-physics group at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, thereby laying the foundation of all that came afterwards … great people, great physics, great places … looking forward to more of all :)
