LIYSF 2019: Day 20

Visiting CERN was more exceptional than I had ever imagined. Thousands of physicists from all over the world analyse the collisions that take part in the organisation’s extensive network of accelerators. Within the Antimatter Factory, the antiproton deceleration ring ELENA (Extra Low Energy Antiproton) produces beams of antiprotons, which are then trapped and studied. The … Read more
