Rock On!!

Currently I am at CERN working at the test beam. We are actually about to test a new pixel sensor as we want to upgrade our telescope with this next generation sensor in September. So far we are still working on the changes in the read out and therefore are not taking data yet. As soon there will be some events, I will report on them.

CERN Hardronic Festival 2009

But we are not only sitting here and freeze (the air condition system is set to a very low value and we can’t find the switch to reduce the cold air flow – so bring a jacket if you want to join the fun).  Last night we all went to the “Hardronic Festival” here on the Prevessin site of CERN. A really nice music event, with a number of bands from the CERN Music Club playing hard rock. Drinks and food were on sale, and fun stuff organized for the kids, like a rather big bouncing castle. A few hundred people came and we all had a great evening.  People were dancing in front of the stage, other people were relaxing on the lawn and yet other people enjoyed the beer and wine. A lot of people were trying to do all three things at the same time.

All bands were great, but my favorite band was “The Danglers”. They had a cool but also rather funny show. But really great fun was their adaptation of “Beat it” from Michael Jackson. The last band of the night, “ Physt”, performed a hard rock version of Phil Collins’ Land of Confusion, really cool !

I actually came home at 2 am, so getting up on time this morning was a bit difficult….

Party
