Atlas Muon

Last Large Piece of ATLAS Detector Lowered Underground

Researchers in the U.S. ATLAS collaboration joined colleagues around the world on Friday, February 29, to celebrate a pivotal landmark in the construction of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) - the lowering of the final piece of the ATLAS particle detector into the underground collision hall at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Experiments conducted at this revolutionary LHC facility, poised to become the world's most powerful particle accelerator, may help scientists unravel some of the deepest mysteries in particle physics. Professors Gan, Kagan, and Kass are members of the ATLAS collaboration that constructed a critical component of the ATLAS detector. (Press release here)
