In case you haven’t seen it, this is the very first image to be uploaded to the web, according to CERN. It was uploaded 22 years ago today, on July 18th, 1992.
The band, Les Horribles Cernettes, dubbed “the one and only high energy rock band,” was created by graphic designer Michele Muller and computer scientist Silvano de Gennaro—both working for CERN at the time. They sang love songs about quarks, colliders, liquid nitrogen, antimatter, and other topics related to science, technology, and quantum physics.
The Cernettes had no idea they would go down in history for reasons other than music.
