An international team of over 2,000 scientists, led by Professor Tejinder Virdee from Imperial College London's Department of Physics is stepping up preparations for the world's largest ever physics experiment, starting next year at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland. The CMS experiment has so far involved thousands of scientists and engineers working for 15 years to design and build the massive particle detector, which is currently being lowered ? huge bit by huge bit - into a chamber 100 metres below the French town of Cessy, near the Swiss border. Next year, CERN's Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator will be switched on for the first time, accelerating beams of particles around a 27km circular tunnel underneath the Swiss/French countryside. These particles then collide with each other ? with higher energies than in any experiment ever before ? at the precise location where the particles are passing through the CMS detector.

Anice thing DA.

I know you are a Moderator now an filling up the airways
with your selective wisdom.

My question, possibly for Kate, is why the pages show like zero replys and 13 comments. How do we see those comments? are they real or some number generator meanin nothing?

I've no idea. Perhaps it is an artifact of the new software.

I would certainly like to see more replies and a larger community. Perhaps, with time, we can attract that without it just being anti-science trolls.

jjw. You asked:

"My question, possibly for Kate, is why the pages show like zero replys and 13 comments."

I see the columns as "replies" and "views". I presume this is a record of how many times someone has actually looked at the posting.
