SHiP experiment approved

Just over ten years after its initial proposal, the SHiP experiment has been approved by the CERN management to start data taking in the next decade! The SHiP experiment is designed to search for extremely weakly interacting particles by using an incredibly intense beam of protons available at the LHC.

The experiment was co-founded by Prof. Nicola Serra and was supported by an SNF-Starting grant in the design phase, where Martina Ferrillo (left) and Dr. Iaroslava Bezshyiko (right) made vital contributions. The approval of the CERN management moves the experiment into the finalization of the design and construction phase – what an exciting time to be part of the experiment!
