Night-shift live stream: #RestartLHC splash events

Yesterday, the LHC circulated the first beams in the accelerator after Long Shutdown 1 and CMS recorded some splash events.

This evening, we'll get a second batch of splash events and shifters are eagerly awaiting beam in the CMS Control Room.

We'll provide you with short updates from our shifters for the next few hours.

LHC data brought to life through music

Guest post by Chiara Mariotti


I first studied music at the Conservatorio di Torino when I was in high school but stopped during my university studies. I returned to music maybe 25 years later, when my kids started to play instruments (they play the trumpet and the saxophone). I felt great joy when I resumed playing and I discovered that I was still able to; my fingers were playing even without my conscious control of them. I soon joined the Thoiry harmony group (L'Echo du Reculet) and then enrolled at the local municipal school to take flute lessons again.

Hacking together a cloud chamber

Science Hack Day [SHD] is a 48-hour-all-night event where anyone excited about making weird, silly or serious things with science comes together in the same physical space to see what they can prototype within 24 consecutive hours. Designers, developers, scientists and anyone who is excited about making things with science are welcome to attend – no experience in science or hacking is necessary, just an insatiable curiosity.
