New Science Museum exhibition examines origins of universe

Collider uses artefacts, theatre and video to recreate the Large Hadron Collider in London.

June 17, 2013, 11:39 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- In November 2013, a new exhibition at the Science Museum will examine the Large Hadron Collider, transporting visitors into the heart of one of the greatest scientific experiments of our times. The exhibition, called Collider, will give visitors an incredible behind-the-scenes looks at the famous CERN particle physics laboratory in the world's first exhibition of its kind. The Science Museum is located in South Kensington, close to Earl's Court station. LondonTown.com offers numerous deals on hotels near Earl's Court for visitors to London.

This extraordinary and immersive exhibition will blend theatre, video and sound art, replicating the site of the LHC so that the museum's visitors can explore areas including CERN's Control Room and a huge underground detector cavern. Visitors can meet ‘virtual' scientists and engineers from CERN, snoop around a researcher's workbench, and examine objects up-close. Visitors will even be able to follow the journey of particle beams as they are injected into the accelerator chain, ramped up to speed and steered around the 27km tunnel. Moving along the tunnel, visitors are then immersed in the highlight of the exhibition – a wrap-around projection taking in both extremes of the scale of the LHC: from an enormous experiment cavern, to the very heart of a particle collision.

Collider has been created with the close collaboration of CERN, giving the Science Museum exclusive access to real artefacts from the Large Hadron Collider on the Swiss-French border near Geneva, including part of the giant 15-metre magnets that steer the particle beam, and elements from each of the four giant detectors. Visitors will also be able to follow the story of how scientists have studied the immensely complex subject of particle physics thanks to items from the museum's collections, including the accelerator used by Cockcroft and Walton to split the atom in 1932. Collider will open on 13th November, for full details of admission see LondonTown.com.
