We will have a live webcast of the roll-in of Belle II on Niconico Live, the largest webcasting service in Japan.
The Belle II experiment is an international collaboration hosted by KEK in Tsukuba, Japan.
The experiment explores the mysteries of elementary particles and the universe with the world-most-powerful particle accelerator.
One of the goals is to reveal new physics beyond the Kobayashi-Maskawa theory, which was experimentally verified by the B-factories in Japan and the US and lead to the 2008 Nobel prize in Physics for Kobayashi and Maskawa.
The Belle II detector has outer dimensions of 8 m x 8 m x 8 m and weighs about 1400 tons ! This huge detector will be moved to its final position at the collision point and integrated with the SuperKEKB accelerator. Since the procedure is very delicate, it will take an entire day to move only 13 m.
If successful, this will be a great milestone towards the beginning of the Belle II experiment. Let’s watch how it goes together !!
