The CMS experiment is one of the largest international scientific collaborations in history... and you can join it by contributing your computer!
CMS@Home allows you to run simulations for the CMS experiment on your home computer. You too can get your hands on models of the latest data coming from the LHC, which has been running at 13 teraelectronvolts (TeV) – almost double the collision energy of the LHC's first, three-year run. For the next, 3rd and 4th runs of the LHC, there will be even higher luminosity and hence more particle collisions. CMS needs your help to simulate future detector upgrades as well.
