The LHC Interactive Tunnel
Both, the LHC Interactive Tunnel (LIT) and the upgraded LIT-DISCO await you on 28 and 29 October 2023 at Crescent Model Higher Secondary School (Boys Campus), Shadman Lahore!
In the Lahore Science Mela 2022, CERN’s Media Lab returned to the Lahore Science Mela and helped the Khwarizimi Science Society exhibit the new and improved 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.
