Light is a bridge between reality and ourselves, and accelerators help us to ‘see’ beyond our natural vision. These are the key messages of a talk by CERN’s Lucio Rossi and Fermilab’s Giorgio Apollinari that kicked off celebrations of the International Year of Light. Watch the talk on light, luminosity and the High-Luminosity LHC project online here.

The next talk in this series will be held on 24 February at CERN’s Globe of Science and Innovation on the subject of “Superconductivity, High-Luminosity LHC and emerging energy technologies”. More details, including how to follow the talk via webcast, available here: http://cern.ch/go/light
