More physics on the silver screen…

A charming little film from Phil Owen

By Hamish Johnston

I happened to be looking at the ATLAS experiment web page at CERN and came across a series of videos on the particle physics that ATLAS will be exploring once the LHC is up and running.

The six films are all winners of the “ATLAS Multimedia Contest and Intern Program”. There isn’t much information on the site about the contest — I’m assuming that the videos were made by interns who perhaps spent the summer at CERN?

The overall winner is Phil Owen — congratulations Phil — and his video is called Origin of Mass. Runner-up titles include ATLAS Rising and Eye on the Answers.

The rest of the winning videos can be viewed here.

One comment to More physics on the silver screen…

  1. Concerning the Multimedia Contest of the ATLAS Experiment at CERN, the entrants were not affiliated with ATLAS or CERN in any way. They were interested people from around the world. The winner, Phil Owen, in fact prepared his piece in Australia. Phil has won an internship with ATLAS that will begin with the startup of the LHC in mid-November, which coincides with him finishing university.
