Marvel at some of the world's most sophisticated technology

Just outside of Geneva, Switzerland, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is home to the world's most powerful particle accelerator—the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This insider tour, back by popular demand, will take us underground during the collider's two-year-long shutdown to gaze at this breathtakingly advanced scientific equipment.

Jim Alexander, who’s part of a team of Cornell physicists involved in important projects at CERN, will talk with us about the work they’re doing and about experiments being conducted there by physicists from around the world.

And when we’re not immersed in scientific wonders, Sarah How, Cornell's European studies librarian, will further enrich our travels with her insights about Swiss arts and culture.
