The ATLAS Experiment at CERN is one of the largest most complex scientific instruments ever constructed. It is designed to  explore the inner universe, advancing our understanding of the basic building blocks of nature.

The webinar was delivered by Dr. Angelos Alexopoulos (CERN) and Dr. Sofoklis Sotiriou (EA) straight from the control room of the ATLAS Experiment. Watch the recording below:
