LHCb on track

On 7 and 8 June 2006, the last large component of the LHCb experiment was lowered into the cavern. This 10-tonne, 18-metre long metal structure known as 'the bridge' will support the LHCb tracking system. >>

Precious Jewels Preserved by digitization

The User and Document Services Group of the IT Department (IT-UDS) has been digging through the archives and found some buried treasure. For 30 years all conferences and seminars taking place in CERN main auditorium, the largest lecture hall in Geneva for many years, were taped using analog format for audio recording. The IT-UDS Audio, Visual and Conferencing Services are currently digitising these jewels and making them available on the Internet. >>

An extraordinary opportunity for China's brightest

CERN hosted the 20 Chinese students who won the 'E=mc2 to modern science' Einstein Award during their first trip to Europe. >>

CERN Accelerator School: A vacuum well filled

CAS and the ALBA Synchrotron Light Facility (Consortium CELLS) jointly organized a specialized school on 'Vacuum in Accelerators' in Platja d'Aro, Spain from 16 to 24 May, 2006. >>

Music after the rain

The earth moved in Prévessin on 29 July. This was not an earthquake but an 'international' music event, the seventeenth CERN Hardronic Festival, which saw musicians from many different countries, including Russia, Britain, Spain, France, Belgium and the USA, take to the stage. >>

From cosmic OPERA to neutrino ballet

As the CNGS (CERN Neutrinos to Gran Sasso) project prepares to send its high intensity neutrino beam, some 730 km away in Italy, the OPERA collaboration is beginning to commission its electronic detectors in the underground Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS). >>

Power failure at CERN Meyrin site

The power failure, which occured at 7:47 on the morning of Saturday 29 July, was caused by a short-circuit in a 66 kV substation on the Meyrin site. >>
