February 08, 2017
We spent the whole of Wednesday in the CERN complex visiting the first accelerator to be built on the site: the Synchro-cyclotron and an amazing underground visit to see the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector up close. We saw first-hand the staggering scale and complexity of the experiments being carried out.
