Lyn Evans | 26 September 2013Dialogue with the general public is important for good relations with the neighbours of research labs. This weekend, CERN holds its Open Days to share the excitement of science and life at a lab with an estimated 50,000 visitors per day. Let’s keep this tradition up.

Barbara Warmbein | 13 June 2013During the ECFA LC2013 workshop that took place a the end of May at DESY in Hamburg, the LC management, civil engineering and machine-detector interface experts visited the tunnel of the future European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser XFEL - a week before construction was officially finished. DESY and the European XFEL celebrated the completion of the construction work with a ceremony, atmospheric lights and music in the new tunnel. Watch the slideshow.

Image: DESY | 20 December 2012The German lab DESY is saying good-bye to one of its accelerator workhorses, the DORIS ring. On 2 January 2013 the final beam will go round its tunnel. It has already stopped being a light source: the last positron beam reached the HASYLAB experimental huts on 22 October. Between then and now, DORIS reverted to its original raison d’etre: an accelerator for particle physics.
