Product description

Review

The book explains the basic physics of the LHC, such as what a proton beam looks like and how the particles are made to collide, in simple graphic terms. It also clarified a few things that I'd always been slightly hazy about, such as how exactly the particles thrown out from collisions are detected. [...] It would undoubtedly go down well as a Christmas present with science enthusiasts. --Hannah Devlin, The Times http://timesonline.typepad.com/science/2009/11/build-your-own-large-hadron-collider.html
