Experience with ATLAS Experiment at CERN

Episode 6

EXPERIENCE WITH ATLAS EXPERIMENT AT CERN, with Wasikul Islam, an Indian Particle Experimentalist in the USA

One of the many famous statements by legendary Physicist Richard Feynman was: “It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with the experiment, it’s wrong”.  

Wasikul Islam is an Indian Ph.D. candidate in experimental particle physics at Oklahoma State University, USA who preforms such experiments to verify if theories agree with experiment.  Wasikul is one of the members of the ATLAS Collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland.  

In this episode, Wasikul is going to take us on a journey inside the world of those who work on the largest and most powerful experimental apparatus ever created! He will describe how the ATLAS Experiment at CERN works with the help of thousands of Physicists across the world.
