Large Hadron Collider's ATLAS Experiment Reconstructed In Lego

As per recent reports, it has been revealed that an expert from Niels Bohr Institute, Sascha Hehlhase has successfully assembled an eye-catching model of ATLAS, which is primarily one of the experiments going on at the Large Hadron Collider, is completely out of the Lego bricks.

While expressing his opinion regarding the development, a Physics postdoc Sascha Hehlhase, who feels that the promising model that is fabricated by an outreach project, said that it will be effectively heeding minute information quite impressively, and will certainly prove effective in capturing the "muon and magnet system to the innermost pixel detector".

Hehlhase has broken down his research by the means of effective numerals: in excess of 9,500 pieces, sized 1 x .5 x .5m ("almost 1:50 in terms of scale"), and around 81 hours of complete work, which combines into a total of 48 hours required for constructing the 3D model and around 33 hours of construction. The phase of construction was smeared over a number of weekends as well as happy hour.

In this regard, the experts will soon compile a construction manual, with substitute details for seeking the misplaced Higgs boson brick, which apparently holds immense imperativeness in terms of the Standard Model related to both particle physics. Subsequently, the same thing applies to the Lego brick physics as well.

Therefore, for the sake of constructing a medieval fort by the means of a dungeon and operational fling, five other particle detector experiments of LHC are not involved.

Physics aficionado Sascha Mehlhase has recently developed a $2,600 Lego model of Atlas detector, which belongs to the Large Hadron Collider.

However, a more comprehensive research is needed in this regard and for that, it is needless to mention that more and more funding will be required. Sascha was full of joy and expectations that his model will be a superfine "eye catcher" for all and sundry.
