This exhibition is based on the Weltmaschine exhibition that the community of German nuclear and particle physicists, supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research BMBF, hosted in Berlin in the year 2008. Its exhibits inform visitors about CERN and the LHC, the world of particle physics as well as the technological challenges and the practical benefits of the project. Designed for display at universities and other institutions that are involved in the LHC and its experiments. The exhibition is made up of roll-up displays (1 metre x 2 metre), large images (4.20 metre x 2.80 metre) and several individual exhibits. The experiential elements of this hands-on experience are highlighted by in-person guides, the physicists themselves, who answer questions and talk from first-hand experience of working with the LHC and its experiments.
