The interventions on the detector are almost complete and the massive doors of the L3 magnet have been closed. Now it is time for commissioning and technical runs.
Last March a primary school named “ALICE” was inaugurated in Prévessin-Moëns. The event was animated by scientists of the ALICE experiment and staff from CERN’s Communications group.
During the last weeks many students from Italian high schools landed at CERN to build their own muon detector based on the Multigap Resistive Plate Chambers of the ALICE TOF system, for the EEE project.
