Abstract: Recent big science experiments based on the collaboration of thousands of scientists coming from hundreds of institutions have introduced important changes in the way scientific activity is organized in some research areas. As a consequence, individual scientists are affected in different ways as they are obliged to adapt to the new dynamics in terms of their own work and their relationships with colleagues. This paper presents the case of research undertaken in ATLAS, one of four big experiments in high-energy physics using the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva and one of the most important big science experiments to date. By gathering and analysing several micro-cases of individual experiences of ATLAS members, we propose that the size and complexity of the experiment do indeed influence the personal relationships among scientists themselves and also their relationships with their organizations. As a result of this analysis, we put forward a set of propositions concerning these relationships that might potentially be generalized to other big science experiments.
