CERN Webcast

cernAt CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. This Webcast will present the CERN infrastructure and the latest research results.


18:30 – Leacture “LHC – The biggest machine in the world”

19:00 – ALICE. The experiment which tries to recreate conditions that existed in the Universe just after the Big Bang: the Quark-Gluon Plasma. (With the possibility to ask the questions directly to CERN)

20:00 – CERN Control Centre. The room from which all CERN Accelerators are driven.(FULL)

21:00 – LHCb. This experiment looks for an explanation of the imbalance of matter and antimatter in our Universe.

22:00 – CMS. Experiment which, together with ATLAS, co-discovered the Higgs Boson.
