Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS)

Milestone for giant physics lab. ‘Construction on a giant underground laboratory that will help take physics into a new era is reaching a major milestone. At 0500 GMT, a crane began to lower 2,000 tonnes of machinery into a man-made cavern 100m below ground. The machinery is part of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS), one of four big experiments belonging to the world’s most powerful particle accelerator. The accelerator is being built at CERN, on the Franco-Swiss border. Called the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), it is designed to probe the limits of physics.’
