On Monday 24 February 20 A level students and 2 teachers visited the LHC at CERN. The photo is of the group alongside the beam, 100 metres underground with the CMS detector in the background. The CMS detector is one of two devices that has confirmed the existence of the Higg's Boson. We were able to see the detector because the collider is in the middle of a planned upgrade to double the energy of the colliding proton beams. In May this year the detector will be sealed and members of the public will have to wait 7 years to see it. In the afternoon the students took part in a 90 minute seminar with a particle physicist from the CMS team. Ben Searle (Year 13) described the visit as an incredible experience, and one that will never be forgotten.
