CERN — the European Organization for Nuclear Research

Interactive Model of LHC

Purpose

To raise awareness of the Large Hadron Collider and what happens inside it

Information

For the project grenzgenial we developed this exhibit, which allows to interactively adjust the energy of the LHC. Displays inform about the current speed and energy of the protons, animations show the movement of the particles.
 
This model illustrates in a scientificly correct way the relativistic relation between speed and energy, the speed of the particles is also to scale.
