Summary:
"On the outskirts of Geneva, Switzerland, 100 metres under the foot of the Jura mountains, lies one of the largest underground caverns ever made by mankind. Inside this concrete void, a 7000 tonne behemoth is taking shape. The product of more than 18 years of conception, research, design and construction, the ATLAS physics experiment, a particle detector situated at CERN's enormous Large Hadron Collider (LHC), is  Read more...

The product of more than 18 years of conception, research, design and construction, the ATLAS physics experiment, a particle detector situated at CERN's enormous Large Hadron Collider (LHC), is one of the most significant technological wonders of the modern age." "The LHC, with its 27 kilometres of underground super-conducting magnets, is a mere producer of particles for ATLAS to observe. Protons, travelling at nearly the speed of light, collide within the heart of ATLAS, sending out showers of debris and creating conditions like those that existed millionths of a second after the Big Bang." "Equally fascinating is the journey that all of these passionate scientists have followed in bringing ATLAS from simple ideas to the largest scientific experiment ever built. This book traces the stories of these people in words and pictures as they assemble this visually impressive piece of engineering - which may change everything we think we know about our Universe."--Jacket." ;
