This CMS simulated event was created using Geant4 simulation software. Image: CMS Collaboration Simulation is not magic, but it can certainly produce the feeling. Although it can’t miraculously replace particle physics experiments, revealing new physics phenomena at the touch of a key, it can help scientists to design detectors for best physics at the minimum cost in time and money. Geant4 is a detector simulation software toolkit originally created at CERN and currently developed by about 100 physicists and computer…
