For eight years, the Laboratory has opened its doors to the general public one evening a year for this celebration of science but, if you’re unable to travel to CERN, take a virtual tour of the experiments from your armchair!

18:00 – CERN Data Centre, where all the data from all the experiments are stored and shared using the world’s biggest computing grid for science. Tour in Finnish.

19:00 – ALICE, the experiment that studies quark-gluon plasma, a state of matter thought to have existed just after the Big Bang. Tour in English.

20:00 – CERN Control Centre, the nerve centre from which all of CERN’s accelerators are controlled. Tour in English.

21:00 – LHCb, the experiment that seeks to understand why we live in a universe that appears to be composed of matter but no antimatter. Tour in Serbian.

22:00 – CMS, the experiment that, like ATLAS, is exploring the great issues of particle physics and co-discovered the Higgs boson in 2012. Tour in Lithuanian.
