Visit CMS through the Power of the Internet

Each year, CERN welcomes around 100,000 visitors onsite. Many of these visitors take a short trip from the laboratory's main site in Meyrin to the French commune of Cessy to see one of humankind's modern scientific marvels: the CMS detector. The 14000-tonne detector is located in a vast cavern around 100 metres (or about 30 storeys) underground, with an adjacent cavern housing several data-collection and power-distribution devices.

CERN’s 60th anniversary celebrations light up Cessy

Picture it: more than 200 volunteers, several tiring weeks of preparations, over 4500 visitors and lots of happy faces!

Happy birthday CERN!

2014 marks a special occasion for CERN: its 60th anniversary. To celebrate, CMS opened our doors to our neighbours for an entire weekend (24 and 25 May) and the response thrilled us.
