New season starts for the LHC experiments

by Panos Charitos

Last April, the detectors of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) witnessed their first collisions of 2017 with the machine reaching an outstanding performance. 

Jürgen Schukraft has been recently awarded the Niels Bohr Institute’s Honorary Medal for his outstanding career in heavy-ion physics and his role as spokesperson of the ALICE experiment.
