Apple Macintosh II still performs important function at LHC CERN

 

 

As we were leaving CERN shortly before the initial switch on of the LHC last year, I spotted this Mac II box at the main entrance. If the box looks this good after 20 years, what is the Mac still doing?

Our visit was research for a new 3D school show we are working on in collaboration with Pete Edwards, Durham University (aimed at S3/Yr10 and up). The working title is "LHC3D : It's all down to gravity!"

As well as stereo photos and stereo video, we also have interviews with John Ellis and many members of the various teams.... we will make this material available asap. In the meantime, you can find other images from our LHC visit and our other activities here : http://www.digitallearningfoundation.com/image
