Senior vice-minister of science of Japan visits CERN

| 23 January 2014

One hundred metres under Swiss roads and fields, Yoshitaka Sakurada, Senior Vice Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan, was pleased to discover the Japanese flag proudly displayed on an inner triplet magnet, one of the Japanese contributions to the Large Hadron Collider LHC at CERN. Guided in the LHC by former LHC Project Leader and LCC Director Lyn Evans and Asian Regional Director Akira Yamamoto, Sakurada and his team visited the tunnel and the ATLAS experiment last Friday. Both are examples of how international collaborations can achieve great things for science.
