The Big Picture: 2008 the year that was [part 2]


As promised, here’s part 2 of The Big Picture – 2008 the year that was posts.

2008 has been an eventful year to say the least – it is difficult to sum up the thousands of stories in just a handful of photographs. That said, I will try to do what I’ve done with other photo narratives here, and tell a story of 2008 in photographs. It’s not the story of 2008, it’s certainly not all stories, but as a collection it does show a good portion of what life has been like over the past 12 months. This is a multi-entry story, 120 photographs over three days. Look for part 1 from yesterday and part 3 tomorrow. (40 photos total)

The CMS is one of two general-purpose LHC experiments designed to explore the physics of the Terascale, the energy region where physicists believe they will find answers to the central questions at the heart of 21st-century particle physics. The Large Hadron Collider was scheduled to be up and running by the end of 2008, but electrical difficulties have set the date back to summer of 2009. (Maximilien Brice, © CERN)

    What a year it has been! 2009 should even be more interesting, with CERN LHC preparing for the real events.

    Everyone is invited to attend a personal ongoing CERN LHC/ALICE/ATLAS Public Debate Forum Invitational, in progress through the following url:
