From the awakening of CERN’s new linear accelerator Linac4 to major upgrades across the accelerator complex and detectors, it has been a year of change to the CERN infrastructures.

In the midst of a global pandemic, CERN scientists joined forces with experts in healthcare, drug development, epidemiology and emergency response in the fight against COVID-19.

Yet, despite the year’s challenges, the CERN community produced many beautiful physics results, from the discovery of a new tetraquark to the first indications of a rare Higgs boson process and the opening of an avenue for high-precision studies of the strong force.

This video will take you on a journey through key moments of 2020 at CERN. Enjoy!
