60 Years of CERN (February 5, 1960)

CERN’s legendary reputation as the largest lab for particle physics in the world surpasses the realm of science. Originally initiated by the European Organization for Nuclear Research the research centre in Meyrin near Geneva in Switzerland is inaugurated on February 5, 1960. Its opening ceremony is attended by top-tier scientists, among them Werner Heisenberg, Niels Bohr and Robert Oppenheimer. CERN is one of the first joint-European projects and focuses on basic research in physics. Particle accelerators help the scientists gain fundamental insight in the makeup of matter and the fundamental forces of physics. The 1980s and 1990s yield the discovery of elementary particles such as the W and Z Bosons and provide first evidence of the formation of quark-gluon-plasma.       

In 2008 the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is put into operation, the most powerful particle accelerator in history. It is located 100 m underground in a tunnel with a length of 27 km. Four years later the largest machine in the world is able to prove the last missing piece in the puzzle of the so-called standard model of particle physics, the infamous Higgs boson, which had been implied in theory half a century earlier. To process the massive amount of data that stream from the accelerator ring’s detectors an international collaborative computer network infrastructure is developed—the LHC Computing Grid. Twenty years earlier CERN’s Tim Burners-Lee devised the concept of the World Wide Web for the simple global exchange of information. Early last year it became public that the research institute is planning an even bigger particle accelerator with a circumference of 100 km—the so-called Future Circular Collider (FCC). This collider will hopefully be able to simulate the conditions of the big bang and get to the bottom of the mysterious dark matter.
