Microcosm is an interactive exhibition presenting the work of the CERN particle physics laboratory and its flagship accelerator the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The exhibition displays many real objects, taking visitors on a journey through CERN’s key installations, from the Hydrogen bottle, source of the protons that are injected into the LHC, through the first step in the accelerator chain, the Linac, on to a model of a section of the Large Hadron Collider including elements from the superconducting magnets. Visitors can interact with the displays to try their hand at the controls of a particle accelerator – simulating the acceleration of protons in the LHC and bringing them into collision inside the experiments.

  • Microcosm is an interactive exhibition presenting the work of the CERN particle physics laboratory and its flagship accelerator the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The exhibition displays many real objects, taking visitors on a journey through CERN’s key installations, from the Hydrogen bottle, source of the protons that are injected into the LHC, through the first step in the accelerator chain, the Linac, on to a model of a section of the Large Hadron Collider including elements from the superconducting magnets. Visitors can interact with the displays to try their hand at the controls of a particle accelerator – simulating the acceleration of protons in the LHC and bringing them into collision inside the experiments. The exhibition continues with a 1 :1 scale model of a complete slice through the CMS experiment at the LHC. The computing section displays some of the Oracle data tapes used to store the 30-40 petabytes of data produced yearly by the experiments, made available for analysis using the LHC Computing GRID. The annex to the exhibition contains other historical artifacts such as the central tracker from the UA1 detector, which ran at the Super Proton Synchrotron at CERN from 1981 to 1984, and helped discover the W and Z bosons. Microcosm is located at CERN in the Canton of Geneva, Switzerland, near the town of Meyrin. Entrance is free, without reservation, open 6 days a week. The current exhibition officially opened in January 2016. Contents were developed by CERN in collaboration with spanish design team Indissoluble. (en)
  • Microcosm est un musée de la physique des particules dans l'enceinte du CERN à Meyrin dans le canton de Genève, Suisse. Il s'agit d'un musée très complet, couvrant une large gamme de sujets de physique des particules ainsi que de l'histoire du CERN. (fr)
  • Micromosmo é o nome de uma grande local de exposição normalmente relacionadas com a física de partículas aberta ao público todos os dias no Organização Europeia para a Investigação Nuclear (CERN) às portas de Genebra na Suíça. Mesmo se renovado periodicamente e muitas vezes em função de períodos especiais da organização como para aniversários relacionado com pessoas ou datas importantes da organização ou de máquinas e/ou experiências, de uma maneira geral tem sempre uma parte dedicada à história do CERN. Fundamentalmente com fins didácticos, o Microcosmo tenta mostrar o que se faz, como se faz e para que serve o que faz no CERN. Das inúmeras exposições temáticas pode salientar-se : * a dedicada à invenção da Web no CERN com apresentação do primeiro servidor * o primeiro sítio web do mundo usado por Tim Berners-Lee em 1990 (http://info.cern.ch/) * vigésimo (20º) aniversário do nascimento da Web (2004) * as múltiplas exigências para a realização de experiências que se encontram hoje no domínio público : écran táctil * aniversário dos 50 anos do Sincrotrão a Protões (PS) em 2009 * o que seria o futuro LHC e as suas quatro grandes experiência (vide: CERN#Aceleradores e experiências) e imensas necessidades informáticas como a Grelha de cálculo LHC (WLCG - Worldwide LHC Computing Grid) (pt)
