The Stonehenge of Particle Physics - Robin Ince Visits ATLAS & CERNA Documentary Short
Despite over a decade as one of the UK’s leading popularisers of science, remarkably, Robin Ince had never visited CERN.
So in early 2023 the Shambles team organised for Robin to head out to Geneva to give a talk about his love of science in the very lecture theatre where the discovery of the Higgs Boson was announced. While there he was given a guided tour of the antimatter factory with Professor Niels Madsen, the CERN Control Centre with Dr Simon Albright and then taken 100m below the surface to see the iconic ATLAS experiment with Dr Clara Nellist and Professor Jon Butterworth.
This 45 minute documentary film takes in some of the highlights of the tour looking at the work currently being done at CERN and the history of the ATLAS experiment, as well as sections of Robin’s talk.
