This event will bring students, teachers and scientists together to talk and learn about Cosmic Rays.

  • What are cosmic particles?
  • Where do they come from?
  • How can they be measured?

Example of a question
The Universe as a glass of beer

This talk was given at TEDxOporto 2016 to a large, general public audience.  It attempts to address the question, posed by a young student: "How do we measure what we can't see?" The talk addresses this in three parts:

  1. What we currently know...
A Question of Survival

This presentation was given at TEDxTUM 2015 in front of a large public audience and was recorded and published on the TEDxTUM site, as well as on their YouTube channel.  It attempts to answer the question of why we do basic research by describing it as a necessary facet of human survival.

This material was used for the 3rd annual CERN @Montreux Physics of Music / Music of Physics Workshop.  The workshops are held every year in the Petit Casino during the Montreux Jazz Festival.  These are from July, 2015.

My Life As A Proton

The talk was given to a public audience at Le Scandale in Geneva (21 May 2014), during an event called Pint of Science.  The talk tells the story of a proton from birth in the Big Bang to joining the LHC, including all of the embarrassing steps in between.

The discovery of the Higgs boson came at the end of a long journey, where the direction was marked, but the road had to be built. What now? Now the physicists are looking out onto a world we don’t know, where there are no paths, and even the directions to be followed aren’t very clear. They know...

Picture of the "CERN experience 360" homepage

The "Experience CERN 360" web documentary (http://experience-cern360.fr) is a website in French developed by the CNRS, the CEA and the ExplorNova collaboration (CEA Irfu & iRélité/Capacités SAS) for the CERN 60th anniversary in 2014. 10 entry points...

Affiche A0 qui s’adresse au grand public, qui explique ce qu’est le mécanisme Brout-Englert-Higgs, le boson de Higgs, pourquoi c’est important, comment on peut le chercher, comment s’est déroulée la découverte et qu’est-ce qui vient après la découverte. Aussi disponible en version anglaise. Pour...

Presentation to explain what is dark matter, review the proofs of its existence and show the various attempts to detect it.

Le contenu de l'Univers

This presentation explains what is dark matter, reviews several proofs of its existence and shows the differents attempts to figure out what it is.

A simple presentation to explain the excitement surrounding the discovery of the Higgs boson. Borrows heavily from other presentations but adds lots of animation. Two versions are included: one is in English only; the other is in English and traditional Chinese. Talk was given in Taiwan in...

Hangout with CERN (Wednesdays at 17:00 CET)

Buried 100m below the French / Swiss countryside, between the Alps and the Jura Mountains, is a 27km tunnel housing the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. This chain of superconducting magnets accelerates protons to high energies and then collides them in four different underground halls. Inside...

Showpiece of our exhibition is a spark chamber, that visualizes the continuous shower of cosmic particles. Various displays and models explain the basics of particle physics, modern experiments (emphasizing Austrian contributions) and applications in hi-tech and medicine.
As part of the...

10 min video explaining the history, the purpose and the day of the masterclasses.
Interviews with:
- the current and past moderators from CERN
- the students from France, Austria and the USA
- interviews with a french teacher
- interview with the creator of the CMS...

Through hand drawn illustrations, this video creatively explains the basics on what we know about dark matter. Contents of this video are based on what the author learned during a conversation with physicists Daniel Whiteson and Jonathan Feng about Dark Matter and how CERN's collider is helping...

This on-line tutorial explains to the viewer the potential discoveries of the ATLAS experiment as being the following:
1. The Unknown
2. Dark Matter
3. The Origin of Mass
4. Extra Dimensions
5. Antimatter
6. New Forces
7. The Standard Model
For...

An award winning interactive tour of quarks, neutrinos, antimatter, extra dimensions, dark matter, accelerators and particle detectors from the Particle Data Group of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Look at telescope pictures of the Milky Way, and you’ll see countless stars, representing enormous mass. But there’s even more mass there that you can’t see! This Interactive will help you understand how scientists know that. Set up a galaxy with no dark matter, and look at the speeds of the...

This bright and colorful book uses quirky art, humor, and good science to drive its points home for a general audience. Subjects covered include:
1. Our universe
2. LHC-what it is, how it works, what it studies
3. Dark Energy
4. The scientific process
5. A bit about...
