New ALICE public pages

by Panos Charitos. Published: 28 June 2015

In an effort to enhance the experiment's already strong online presence the ALICE Outreach team developed a new website for ALICE public pages. It presents information on the experiment, the physics explored, the different detectors and systems, as well as the results that have been published. There was a lot of work to be done: written material was reorganized, photo galleries were updated, broken links were fixed.

Nikita Artamonov: My week at CERN

Published: 28 June 2015

My name is Nikita Artamonov, I am 16, and go to the international school of Geneva. I am British, Russian, and Swiss, and will go on to do physics in the IB. I did a 1 week internship, (“stage d’observation” would be a better word for it), at CERN, organized by a physicist called Despina who works at project ALICE.
