It’s summer, and time to be at CERN as much as possible! To fight the effects of jet lag, I did a little work-related traveling from CERN to Uppsala, Sweden (see ) and now I am training for and then taking shifts on the ATLAS Experiment.
Specifically, I am on shift this week at the Trigger Desk in the ATLAS Control Room. I’ve posted some of the sights and experiences of being on shift here:
- “Shadow” (http://steve.cooleysekula.net/goingupalleys/2012/06/17/shadow/)
- “Death Spiral” (http://steve.cooleysekula.net/goingupalleys/2012/06/17/death-spiral/)
and Aidan has much more here:
