This just in from the Hackerspaces Discuss list:

The /tmp/lab is organizing a group visit of CERN, the world’s largest particle
physics laboratory close to Geneva.

We have to give a 4-6 month advance notice, which probably brings the visit to
February/March 2010. Because I must give an estimate of the attendees, I would
be grateful if you subscribe before Monday Oct 19th.

While you’re there, maybe you should go try to find this little piece of history:

UPDATE!

Unfortunately, the list for /tmp/lab’s CERN excursion is FULL!
However, as there seems to be such a huge interest in making the trip still, probably somebody wants to step forward & start a list for a second group? [hint, hint]
