The year of the snake

| 10 January 2013

2013 is the year of the snake – according to Chinese wisdom, it will be a year of steady progress and attention to detail.

This prognosis is something the ILC design team can certainly sign off on: attention to detail is intrinsic to the ILC’S precise collisions, state-of-the-art detectors and challenging machine. And steady progress is certainly ahead with the publication of the Technical Design Report in summer.

The uroboros – the snake that eats its own tail – is also often the representation of the universe, where the very big mirrors the very small.
