Researchers' Night at CERN - Friday 29 September
Program for online activities

If you’re unable to travel to CERN, take a virtual tour of the experiments from your armchair! The tours will be conducted in several languages and CERN's Facebook news feed from the various CERN venues as follows:

  • 18:00 – CERN Data Centre, where all the data from all the experiments are stored and shared using the world’s biggest computing grid for science. Tour in Finnish.
     
  • 19:00 – ALICE, the experiment that studies quark-gluon plasma, a state of matter thought to have existed just after the Big Bang. Tour in English.
     
  • 20:00 – CERN Control Centre, the nerve centre from which all of CERN’s accelerators are controlled. Tour in English.
     
  • 21:00 – LHCb, the experiment that seeks to understand why we live in a universe that appears to be composed of matter but no antimatter. Tour in Serbian.
     
  • 22:00 – CMS, the experiment that, like ATLAS, is exploring the great issues of particle physics and co-discovered the Higgs boson in 2012. Tour in Lithuanian.


Each visit will last 45 min.
Spread the word to your relatives, friends, colleagues in those countries!
