At CERN… June 1, 2008Posted by apetrov in Particle Physics, Physics, Science.
I arrived to CERN last Monday for a two-week stay. It’s a great place to be this year, as both theoretical and experimental part of the lab (not to say about accelerator people, technicians, etc.) are preparing for the start of the machine, which, according to a recent talk, should happen in July. Last week was one of the “focus weeks” of the very interesting “Flavour as a Window to New Physics at the LHC” workshop. With the recent P5 report to HEPAP, it might just be that flavor physics, once again, comes back to the US (at least in the form of participation in “overseas flavor factory”)…
P.S. Where in the world is that laundry room in Bldg. 41 and where do I buy the detergent? Yeah, questions like that are normally not amongst the greatest mysteries of the Universe… 🙂
