The metaphor of contacting cosmic rays is far more than literally interpreted, the poetics of this project built upon the notion that ‘The Solar System belongs to everyone on this planet, any authorities aim for taking this fundamental rights away is brutally attacking our beliefs on human rights as a global citizen.’

The workshop will introduce different cosmic rays detectors inventions around the globe and hands-on technical skills on building DIY cosmic rays detectors.
