While you were gone ASTRID and ASTRID2 have had a little sister

Those of you coming and going via the IFA main entrance have had no trouble discovering a fine LEGO model of our storage ring ASTRID2. Even though the model is super realistic, there is no danger of radiation at all, as the dome over the model absorbs all LEGOtron radiation!
