Make-up of a CERN Collaboration

Screen shot 2010-02-11 at 3.10.40 PM

Grad students working for the CMS detector.

The experiments at CERN are, in total, a collaboration of several thousands of physicists, scientists, engineers, and students. Here I show the make-up of just graduate students from just one of the experiments at CERN, the CMS detector.

People come from all over the world to contribute to these projects. It’s fantastic that so many countries and cultures are represented, and work with each other on common goals such as: recreating the big bang in the lab, studying these mini big-bangs to understand out the laws of nature that govern our universe, and then sharing these discoveries with people all over the world.

These are lofty goals, but you can be sure that whatever discoveries are made, with all the languages spoken at CERN, the knowledge will spread far.
