Beam


The sixth in a series of films following a team of physicists involved in research at the new Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Switzerland.

 

'Beam'  looks at the role of competition in science and joins the night shift in the CMS detector control room.

 

For an introduction to the 'Eurostar' project, watch Episode 1.  For more detail, Jon has written a great explanation of the physics behind the paper on the Guardian's science blog network here.
