Particle beams are colliding at the highest energies ever reached by a man-made accelerator at Switzerland’s CERN research facility—and that has SFU physicists cheering. For Mike Vetterli, just back from CERN, Dugan O’Neil and Bernd Stelzek, getting word March 30 that the long-awaited ATLAS project is now successfully under way was welcome news. They and hundreds of other global researchers have spent more than a decade contributing key elements to the research project—dubbed the world’s biggest physics experiment—and will play a new role in the massive collection and analysis of data collection. The ATLAS project is expected to shed new light on how the universe works.
