    So, obviously, CERN is like science Disneyland so I love going there every time I visit, BUT this time I had a very specific question, what happens at the The European Organization for Nuclear Research when it's #shutdown? Does everyone go on vacation, like school during summer? What is going on for the next 2 years? I was so lucky and got to speak to Andrea Santa-Maria and Steve Goldfarb about what's the goal is for the Long Shutdown 2, and it is CRAZY.

    This article is amazing. The first circular particle accelerator ever was only 5 inches. It was created in 1930, by Ernest Lawrence at the University of California, Berkeley, with graduate student M. Stanley Livingston. The idea was inspired by a Norwegian engineer Rolf Widerøe, a 27-year-old physicist! The little accelerator took hydrogen ions up to energies of 80,000 electronvolts within a chamber less than 5 inches across. It's like the small hadron non-collider.

    ===  HEY THANKS  ===
    Quick note: My goal in every video is to make you *feel* something, *think* something, or *talk to a friend* about what you learned. If any of those apply to you, please consider subscribing to the channel, or sharing the video with your friends on social media! A few seconds of effort on your end really goes a long way, and thanks for even reading this paragraph, it means a lot. 

    ~~~~~  EASTER EGGS FOR READERS  ~~~~~
    P.S - I absolutely love how particle physicists talk about their craft. They are so passionate and interesting, a bunch of us actually went out to dinner and drinks and I learned a lot about Geneva and what it's like to live there. There are people from EVERYWHERE at CERN, Andrea is from Spain, Steve is from the US, and I went to dinner with people from Germany, California, and Puerto Rico. Science can come from ANYWHERE.
    P.P.S - Secondly, I love how LITERALLY they talk about their craft, because the 'beam' isn't just some kind of metaphysical thing - they mean it LITERALLY. The beam is a bunch of 100 billlion protons, sneezed together by magnets. The protons come from a bit of hydrogen that is squirted from a small bottle into a series of accelerators, some are linear, some are circular (like the LHC). These giant machines strip the hydrogen of its electrons -- giving it a positive charge -- and chop it into bunches so they can measure collisions in the experiments. They may be smaller than you can see, but they are still real, physical things. ISN'T THAT AMAZING?!
