Dive into the heart of the CMS experiment with this 360 video!

With the LHC switched off for a two-year technical stop, the CMS collaboration is replacing the beam pipe that runs through the centre of the detector. The new pipe will allow the extremities of the future pixel detectors to get even closer to where the particles collide.

This video takes you inside the 14 000-tonne detector to see for yourself its inner workings.

When two particles collide in there, is there a flash that's bright enough for someone to see?

Brian Medina says:

Thank you so much for these videos! It gives me such joy to get a glimpse of this wonderful place 🙂 🙂 Hopefully one day I will see it in person.

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

How can the level of experimental physics be so high and the camera technique be so utterly poor? Seriously guys and girls, get a fucking intern who grew up with social apps to handle the cameras for you.

This is awesome, nice video!

Not impressed with this nonsense

That was cool thank you from Australia 🙂

Does anyone still read sci-fi these days? It's our imagination that makes these things come to fruition. Drews book review is a great new channel to explore.

Amazing that the detectors are so huge while the beam pipe is just a tiny tube in the middle.

Steve Mosch says:

blackhole confirmed

So 1st CMS's experimentations has started?

holdmybeer says:

i want to see in-person. but this was a cool gift, thanks cern.

Roboterize says:

You smell that? It is the smell of new discovery.

I hate this LSD panoramic camera effect. I didn't evolve to see this way.
