Building ATLAS in Oslo

The ATLAS group at University of Oslo has just finished building their ATLAS brick model and documented it with a very nice time-lapse movie.

After members of the group already helped with the sorting of the pieces at CERN, now students as well as professors took part in the construction of the model in Oslo. Though the group has experience in manufacturing parts of the actual ATLAS detector, building the 50:1 scale model still took more than 30 man hours in total.
