Week 24: 7/15/2015 - 9pm PDT 7/22/2015
The scientists at CERN always take a personal stake in their work. Pushing mankind's knowledge of science and high energy physics takes a special breed of person. Thankfully this special breed always seems to have a fun side as well. Here we see a CERN scientist posing behind a ... a device. It looks to be some kind of coil or beamline part, though the actual use is thus far a mystery even to CERN's own staff. We do know this shot was taken in June of 1973, the same month as one of the longest solar eclipses on record - over 7 minutes of totality! Was this part of some CERN solar experiment? Could it have been part of a particle accelerator? Was this scientist just working on his latest art project - perhaps part of a dodecagon exploration?
You be the judge!
This week's prize is a Teensy 3.1 from The Hackaday Store.
