A colloquium on 25 November will celebrate the anniversary of CERN’s oldest accelerator

On 24 November 1959, CERN’s Proton Synchrotron became the highest-energy machine in the world when it accelerated a beam to its design energy of 24 GeV for the first time. Today, the PS is still in operation, being one of the main cogs in the CERN accelerator complex.
