Nino the neutrino travels from the Sun to the Earth with his friends (like a proton and a photon). But not everyone arrives to the INFN Lab's of Gran Sasso in Italy. And someone even can't stop there!
This funny cartoon shows the properties of the neutrinos. It's in Italian with English...

ATLAS is one of the largest and most complex science instruments ever built, designed to measure and identify particles coming from particle collisions. One of the most important measurements it makes is that of the energy of the particles. Stephen Goldfarb, ATLAS physicist (U of Michigan, USA)...

 

The ATLAS detector on the LHC will give us more and more data on particle collisions than has ever before been collected. How do ATLAS scientists select and keep the data that is important to them? In this interview by ATLAS's Steven Goldfarb (U Michigan), Wengler describes in simple...

 

In ATLAS, the very first component that is reached by colliding particles is the inner detector. As particles collide, their tracks, momentum and charge must be measured with the highest degree of precision. In this interview by ATLAS physicist Steven Goldfarb of colleague Pippa Wells...
