Javier López Espinosa’s dream of visiting the Large Hadron Collider will finally come true.

Javier López Espinosa, a 17-year-old second-year high school student at La Salle, is excited to fulfill his dream of visiting the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. This five-day camp at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is an ideal opportunity for physics students like Javier.

Despite his busy schedule, which includes participation in math competitions, research projects, and space programs, Javier was the only Mexican selected out of more than 650 applicants from 80 countries for the CERN camp. He went through a rigorous selection process that required recommendations, essays, and proof of academic excellence.

After receiving the exciting news of his acceptance into the camp, Javier is preparing to travel to CERN from May 26 to June 1. He hopes to learn more about the Large Hadron Collider and to connect with prominent figures in the field of physics while there.

Javier’s main goal is to bring together the knowledge he gains at the camp with his experiences in other programs to make contributions to Mexico’s scientific development. Inspired by figures like Miguel Alcubierre Moya and Cristóbal Miguel García Jaimes, Javier believes that talent in Mexico is waiting to be discovered.

Through hard work and dedication, Javier discovered his passion for particle physics and aims to pursue a career in the field. He encourages others to find their passion and work towards it, believing that it can truly change their lives. Javier’s journey to CERN is just the beginning of what promises to be a bright future in the world of science.
