Want to be a CERN scientist?

Do you want to become a theoretical physicist for a day? At CERN you can do so by entering the recreation of the office of a scientist designed by Indissoluble for the permanent exhibition Microcosm. You can interact with several objects displayed in the room to activate a series of videos and projections that reveal the mysteries of the Universe.

First, you approach the table to find a computer screen where you can choose the language you want for your visit (English, French, Italian, Spanish or German). Then you can choose one of the 4 audiovisuals to be projected on the walls that form the corner of the room: Dark matter, Antimatter, Gravity and The Higg’s Boson.

The coffee machine on the table provides you with three sorts of coffee: Ristretto, Cappuccino or Espresso. Each one of them activates a video on theoretical physics that’s projected on the blackboard hanging on the wall.

You choose the file you want and it unfolds to show you the paper on the selected subject. Many CERN published articles are included in the cabinet.
