" NA62 is a new experiment at the CERN SPS to explore the infinitely small with rare kaon decays. It is a state of the art detector with hermetic coverage for charged and neutral particles, full particle identification and very light, fast trackers. The main goal is to study the decay K + → π+ ν ν¯, one of the holy grails of flavour physics. The experiment took its first physics data in 2016 and the first results will be presented. "
