A souvenir like no other!

There was a time when you had to choose between buying an awesome souvenir and making a donation for a good cause. But now, you can do both.

At the CERN Shop, you can buy an authentic LHC Data Tape, and support young talent, all in one go.

In 2012, the LHC experiments stored data on such tapes during their search for the Higgs boson. Now, these authentic tapes are available as souvenirs at the CERN Shop with a contribution of 10 CHF or more. 100% of your donation will go directly in support of CERN & Society projects.

Each tape is unique and contains 30 minutes of data taking of around 600’000 proton-proton collision events at 8 TeV. Perhaps, even a Higgs boson event!

So, what are you waiting for? Don't forget your LHC Tape and make a difference today!
