Ars Electronica Festival 2011

CERN and particle physics were the main topics of this year's Ars Electronica Festival in the capital of Upper Austria, Linz. HEPHY contributed a week long with various activities - get some impressions here...

Twice daily, we gave a presentation of the new CERN 3D-movie "Inside_LHC" in the world's largest HD 3D-theatre "Deep Space", with live commentary by one of our scientists. In addition, we offered workshops for kids and youngsters, focusing on our highlight - the spark chamber! Beside all the virtual installations at the festival, we could show something real here: live myons from cosmic radiation - proving that you don't have to travel to CERN to experience exotic particles.

Of course, we were also readily available to answer the numerous questions of the visitors.
