Austria has issued a stamp to commemorate 60 years of CERN foundation. CERN, located close to Geneva at the Swiss-French border, is the world’s largest research centre for particle physics: 21 member states, approximately 2,500 employees and more than 11,000 visiting scientists from 85 countries work there. With the help of the particle accelerator available on the premises, scientists at CERN study the constitution of matter and fundamental interaction between elementary particles.
