QUASARs Collide

The STFC, UK has sponsored the development of an exhibit focussing on the LHC which opened to the public at the Science Museum in London last year. It has now been transferred to the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), and was opened to the public in May.

An adults-only evening on 6 June was a way for scientists and researchers in particle and accelerator physics to engage with visitors demonstrate some science and answer questions on the LHC and accelerators in general.

QUASARs from the Cockcroft Institute, wandered the different floors of the museum holding a series of conversations (called ‘Collisions’) throughout the night. These conversations covered CERN or particle physics related topics.
