Inside LHC - Atlas detector

LHC is a particall colider. But to get data we also need a detector which will corectly detect what happened in the collusion. This detector is named ATLAS. In the video below you can see a simple animation that shows how it looks and how it is constructed.

Episode 1 - A new Hope

Episode 2 - The Particles Strike Back (Part 1)

Episode 3 - The Particles Strike Back (Part 2)

The next video is very short - but is shows very well the scale of LHC. Usually when we hear about such large constructions we cannot visualize them well. This video should make it easier.

From Space to Atlas
