CERN Opens Unique Exhibition with Insights into the World of Particles

Share

A permanent exhibition entitled "Universe of Particles" will soon open at the conference center of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), which has the goal of offering guests an amazing insight into the world of small and large particles.

It is worth mentioning that the exhibition at the Globe of Science and Innovation will include a display on the Large Hadron Collider, so far the biggest accelerator on the planet.

Several illuminated spheres, shown at the exhibition, will represent elementary particles and the stars - the world's smallest and largest particles.

Inside, visitors will also be able to approach interactive kiosks, screens and panels. There will also be display cases and audio kiosks that will provide interesting information and will entertain visitors. The wall of the conference center will show a video on the history of the Big Bang and the Universe.

Guests will have the possibility to get answers to questions regarding particles and contemporary physics that the European organization is exploring today using the LHC and a number of other accelerators.

In addition, the exhibition will include four zones: mysterious worlds, the Large Hadron Collider, detecting particles and science without borders. All of these zones will be located around a huge, disc-shaped display that will show pictures of LHC collisions.

The opening of the exhibition will take place on July 1, 2010. The entry to the Universe of Particles will be free. CERN's conference center can be found at Route de Meyrin, Geneva.
