Want to hang out with the people who run the CMS? No, not the content management system. The Compact Muon Solenoid. It’s one of the two big detectors at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the largest and highest-energy particle accelerator in the world.
CERN physicist Dr. Albert De Roeck is hosting a Google+ Hangout tomorrow from inside the cavern where the experiment takes place, about 100 meters underneath Cessy, France. He’ll explain the CMS experiment and take questions about the crazy frontiers of particle physics.
