Tomorrow: Live underground tour of the CMS detector on Google+


You're invited to tour an underground cavern that holds one of the largest scientific experiments in the world.

The head of the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, physicist Joe Incandela, will chat live from the CMS detector 100 meters underground in France via a Google+ Hangout tomorrow, Feb. 15, from 1-2 p.m. Eastern (find your local time here). Postdoc Sue Ann Koay of the University of California Santa Barbara will join the Hangout from above ground in the CMS Control Room.

To watch a live stream of the Hangout, visit the CMS Google+ page. To participate, add +CMS Experiment to your circles on Google+ and comment here with a question you would like to ask on air.

A video of the Hangout will be available on YouTube sometime after the event.
