Interactive LHC Tunnel

CERN’s Media Lab will help Khwarizmi Science Society exhibit the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Interactive Tunnel. The tunnel is an exhibit based on the world’s largest physics experiment and lets people play football with sub-atomic particles, like electrons and protons, in real time. The high quality visuals and sounds offer great entertainment while the educational value of the tunnel is no less. During the game play, the exhibit educates the players and the audience about the building blocks of the universe, the Standard Model, the Higgs boson and the ultimate nature of physical reality.
