CERN and Geneva, Switzerland (2011)

CERN

In summer 2011, I visited CERN in Geneva, CH.

This is the ATLAS Control Building and its control room:

There is also a pretty newly built “globe” where one can explore the world of particle physics.

It looks very nice at night.

While I was visiting CERN, I also went into downtown Geneva. Here are some of the pictures.
