What's it like to live and work in the world's most famous physics mecca? Suzanne Moore went to Geneva, Switzerland to meet the scientists who study particle physics at CERN, home of the Large Hadron Collider and the Higgs Boson — and also home to a multinational population that can reach 10,000 at different times of year.
Google Street View is slowly becoming the window to a world that most of us may never get to see in real life. And if you’ve already explored every last nook and cranny of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider via Street View, you can now head on over to the UK and poke around the retired HMS Ocelot; a 50-year-old retired Oberon-class submarine.

21 Oct 2014-22 Oct 2014 Not just a smooth talker, professor Brian Cox is a Royal Society University Research fellow; he works on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider...
From the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, to zoos and animal parks, Google Street View has long transcended the inherent restrictions imposed by the ‘street’ element in its name. With... Keep reading ?
What – you didn't really think the LHC was designed to seek out answers to the most confounding questions in all of physics, did you? Read more...
If you've ever wondered how much energy it takes to perform a full body scan, consider this: a new MRI designed to probe the deep structure of the brain uses a magnet more powerful than the ones inside the Large Hadron Collider.
British physicist predicted Higgs boson 50 years before it was observed in Large Hadron Collider Briefing LAST UPDATED AT 14:41 ON Tue 8 Oct 2013 THE Nobel Prize in physics has been awarded to Peter Higgs and Francois Englert. The two...Show More Summary
The search for the Higgs at experiments at the Large Hadron Collider was an international effort involving thousands of people, with physicists and engineers from US institutions playing a significant role throughout. In 2012, the announcement of the Higgs particle rocked the world. Show More Summary
The Large Hadron Collider is the centerpiece of CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research). It is the world’s largest laboratory for studying particle physics. Now, thanks to Google Street View, you won’t have to travel to Geneva to understand how it is helping to develop our understanding of the universe we live in. Show More Summary
WHEN physicists throw the “on” switch on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), between three and six gigabytes of data spew out of it every second. That is, admittedly, an extreme example. But the flow of data from smaller sources than CERN, the European particle-research organisation outside Geneva that runs the LHC, is also growing inexorably. Show More Summary
Welcome to the tunnel at the Large Hadron Collider. (Credit: Screenshot by Amanda Kooser/CNET) Perhaps Google Street View should be renamed "Google Anything View." Google's wandering cameras have now made their way into CERN's Large Hadron Collider, the atom-smashing wonder located under the Franco-Swiss border. Show More Summary
A virtual tour of the Large Hadron Collider and the ATLAS, CMS, LHCb and ALICE experiments is now available on Google Street View. Visitors all over the world can now explore CERN’s massive detectors and 1200 meters of the Large Hadron Collider tunnel with Google Street View—a Google product that links a series of panoramic photos into a virtual tour.
The team at CERN hasn’t exactly made the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) a big secret. There are numerous documentaries that showcase one of our biggest and most expansive scientific endeavors of all-time. With that being said, documentaries don’t really allow us to slowly walk around the LHC at our own pace. Now, thanks to the...
Google Street View is a great way to explore parts of the world you've never visited. And thanks to Google's European team, it's now one of the easiest ways to explore a facility you're not exactly allowed to just stroll through whenever you want. Show More Summary
Want to see CERN's Geneva lab, where the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is installed, from the inside? You're in luck, cause Google has added Street View imagery from inside CERN's facilities to its Google Maps service The imagery shows CERN's laboratories, control centers and underground tunnels. Show More Summary
CERN, the world’s largest particle physics laboratory, has opened its doors to Google’s Street View cameras, allowing viewers to peer inside the building and take a peek at the equipment... Keep reading ?
The largest single piece of experimental scientific apparatus is currently the Large Hadron Collider bridging the border of France and Switzerland. The control building of the ATLAS detector, one of two general purpose particle detectors built with the LHC, has found itself adorned with a magnificent mural. Show More Summary
Despite the discovery of the existence of the Higgs Boson on July 4, 2012 at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, puzzling questions about the nature of the universe remain unanswered. For example, the essential properties of neutrinos are still...
As one of the most ambitious studies of space and time — recreating the origins of our universe and solving some of the biggest riddles of physics — the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, deep below the Franco-Swiss border, is an incredible inspiration for science. And art.
I spent an hour or so on Skype with a former student on Tuesday, talking about how physics is done in the CMS collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider. It’s always fascinating to get a look at a completely different way of doing science– as I said when I explained my questions, the longest author…
