The Worlds Greatest Science Experiment Heads To The Powerhouse Museum

The Museum Of Applied Arts And Sciences (Maas) ‘transports’ The World’s Greatest Science Experiment, The Large Hadron Collider (Lhc), To The Powerhouse Museum In An Australian First Exhibition From 11 August To 30 October As A Part Of The 2016 Sydney Science Festival.

Art Exhibition previously on at Powerhouse Museum in New South Wales, Australia.
From Thursday 11 August 2016 to Sunday 30 October 2016

An Exhibition From The Science Museum, London, Collider Provides A Behind-the-scenes Look At The Cern Particle Physics Laboratory In Geneva That Houses The Lhc. The Lhc Is Most Famous For Proving The Existence Of The Higgs Boson, Otherwise Referred To As The ‘god Particle’. The Higgs Boson Was Theorised In The 1950s To Be A Subatomic Particle Responsible For Giving Other Elementary Particles Mass.

“Maas Has A Long History Of Championing Science, Technology, Engineering And Maths (Stem) In Australia And Is Committed To Continuing To Showcase Work At The Forefront Of These Disciplines. The Lhc Is Heralding A New Frontier In Science With Immeasurable Possibilities For Future Discoveries And Scientific Advancements In Technology.” Said Maas Director, Dolla Merrillees.

“This One-of-a-kind Exhibition Offers Visitors An Insider’s Look At What It’s Like To Visit The Famous Site, To Take A Walk Through The Cern Control Room, Talk To Virtual Scientists And Engineers, And Snoop Around A Researcher’s Workbench,” Said Ms Merrillees.

Deputy Premier And Minister For The Arts, Troy Grant Said This Exhibition Would Expand The Minds Of All Who Experienced It. “the Work Undertaken At Cern Has Far-reaching Impacts On The World. This Immersive Exhibition Places Visitors In The Heart Of Cern And Is The Closest Most Australians Will Get To The Inside Of The Lhc. It Is An Experience That Is At Once Educational And Inspirational.”

Blending Theatre, Video And Sound With Real Artefacts From Cern, The Exhibition Puts Visitors At The Heart Of An Experiment That Recreates The Conditions That Existed Just After The Big Bang Occurred 13.8 Million Years Ago. Visitors Are Invited To Follow The Journey Of Particle Beams As They Are Injected Into The Accelerator Chain, Ramped Up To Speed And Steered Around The 27km Lhc Tunnel. Moving Along The Tunnel, A Wrap-around Projection Engulfs Audiences To Simulate One Of The Lhc’s Enormous Experimental Caverns, As Particles Smash Together Around Them.

Australian Researchers And Students Are Involved In The Lhc Project Through The Arc Centre Of Excellence For Particle Physics At The Terascale (Coepp), A Collaborative Research Venture Between The Universities Of Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney And Monash. The Exhibition Explores Australia’s Contribution To Experiments That Have Been And Are Currently Being Performed At Cern. Two Staff Members At The Powerhouse Museum Have Also Worked On The Project First Hand.

Collider Is A Highlight Of The Sydney Science Festival. The Festival, Now In Its Second Year, Is Produced By The Museum Of Applied Arts And Sciences, In Collaboration With Museums, Galleries, Universities, Businesses, Scientists, Engineers And Community Organisations Across Greater Sydney, To Deliver A Vibrant 11-day Program For National Science Week.
