CERN opens its doors to the world

Today, 6 April 2008, CERN opens its doors to the public, offering a unique chance to visit its newest and largest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), before it goes into operation later this year.

This scientific instrument, the largest and most complex in the world, is installed in a 27 km tunnel, 100 metres underground in the Swiss canton of Geneva and neighbouring France. CERN will open all access points around the ring for visits underground, to the tunnel and the experiment caverns.

    It’s a shame that the event was so poorly organised because the idea was good. There were lines of 3 hours just to get a ticket (which was free, so it basically should just take 2 seconds to hand the ticket, but somehow they were so inefficient it took them 30 seconds per person, or even longer…) and then there was still an extra line to go in, even when you had the ticket.
