The Henry Moseley Society visit to CERN

13 November 2014 by Valeria Crowder

Members of The Henry Moseley Society visited CERN for a unique chance to take part in underground visits (ATLAS/LHCb), lectures and other areas of CERN in Meyrin, Switzerland last October.

Led by senior members of the Particle Physics Group and students currently working on said experiments, visitors had a chance to see first hand the scale of the work being carried out, on CERN 60th Anniversary.

The day visit included a Welcome talk by Dr Paul Collier (CERN Beams Department Head) at The Globe, visits to ATLAS, LHCb, Synchrocyclotron, the Microcosm exhibition; lunch at Restaurant 2 followed by talks in the Council Chambers by Dr Dave Charlton, Prof Tony Weidberg, Prof Guy Wilkinson, Prof Ian Shipsey and Prof Neville Harnew.
In the afternoon we visited SM18 and had a chance to relax and have a nice, informal chat in Restaurant 1, before making our way to the Auberde de meyrin for a lovely dinner, organised by Dr Peggie Rimmer (alumna, Oxford and Dining Club of Geneva (for alumni)and ex-CERN researcher and now CERN Courier staff).
