ATLAS is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and as of today we have a nice new font page on our web site and a dedicated ATLAS25 public web page, featuring a nice timeline of major milestones for ATLAS.
Symmetry (Fermilab and SLAC) just published a great kids book on particle physics …
definitely on my want list now!
And we need a German version …
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.
Based on the submission date of the Letter of Intend, 1 October 1992, the ATLAS Experiment will turn 25 years this autumn and I will have the pleasure to organise a live event on the actual birthday as well as an internal celebration during the Bratislava ATLAS Week in October … while getting caught in this, I noticed that, based on this calculation, I have been with ATLAS for half of its life (and a third of mine) by then.
