Editorial Reviews

Review

The Large Hadron Collider leaps off the page.

[The book] neatly combines the two reasons why the LHC makes people go 'wow': the exotic sounding physics [...] and the sheer magnificence of the machinery itself. (The Times )

Among popular books about particle physics, this one stands out - quite literally. (New Scientist )

Each pop-out genuinely illuminates the workings of the detector and the interactions of the particles it hopes to find. (Nature )

The Large Hadron Collider(LHC)is a particle accelerator located near Geneva, Switzerland, constructed by CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research.) An international team of physicists is using it to study subatomic particles, and their research will expand our understanding of both the subatomic world and of the Universe itself. This intricately-constructed pop-up book (paper engineering by Anton Radevsky)should help in understanding the experiments that are being conducted in a facility that is off-limits to the general public. Going through the book, one even has to do some of the construction using the paper components, and this helps in understanding the actual creating of the atom smasher. This is a pop-up book for learning and study. The subject is so complex that I know I will go back to the book many times before I feel even remotely informed, but Sarah Roberts, the Project Coordinator, has done such a good job on the manner of presentation that I know I'll eventually reach my goal.

Great book to describe the Atlas project, I am not scientific and wanted to understand this research at CERN. It was fun and informative. Love the pop ups.
