The Particle Odyssey

An exhilarating journey into the heart of the subatomic world.

Tuesday 12 April 2005

Professor Frank Close OBE will take the audience on an exhilarating journey into the heart of the subatomic world. With special cameras it is possible to reveal atoms, radioactivity, nuclear particles and even bizarre things like antimatter, quarks and Higgs Bosons. All leave their trails and have their own special beauty. The highly illustrated talk will take us on a
journey from the beginning of modern science, from the discovery of X rays, the electron and atomic nucleus, via the discovery of cosmic rays to the modern frontiers of high energy particles. Seeing is believing! If you didn’t believe these little particles were real, you will after seeing this selection.
Suitable for 15+.
