The JADE experiment was one of five large detector systems taking data at the electron–positron collider PETRA, from 1979 to 1986, at annihilation centre-of-mass energies from 12 to 46.7 GeV. The forming of the JADE collaboration, the construction of the apparatus, the most prominent physics highlights, and the post-mortem resurrection and preservation of JADE’s data and software are reviewed.
