Arts extravaganza at Fermilab


The CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland is not only a remarkable scientific instrument; it is also a work of art. It stands 50 feet tall, weighs 14,000 tons, and its thousands of wires and components work in concert to enable it to detect the smallest particles of matter in the tiniest fractions of a second. It is one of the two particle detectors that enabled the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012.
