Atlas LHC - Very cool stuff

As I've mentioned before, I cut my testing teeth in high energy physics.  Once again, I'm cleaning out my in box and I found a great article in Evaluation Engineering about the Atlas Experiment for the Large Hadron Collider.  It's chock-full of details about all the different measurements they do, and it sort of made me nostalgic for my grad school days - sort of.  

At any rate, I'm pretty sure the massive detail the test engineers at Atlas have to deal with exceeds the difficulties Intel has when testing it's chips

BTW, here's a funny cartoon that came out about the time the LHC went online.  Perversely amusing:
