Hypergrid Adventurers Club meet #28+29: Physics Education and Giant Laboratories on NewWorldGrid

This past Sunday we made two excursions to the region Physics on NewWorldGrid, where we discovered and explored a giant-sized physics lab as well as a planetarium.

In our second meeting of the day we met with the creator Aime Socrates, who also built the amazing CERN nuclear physics area we explored in a previous visit.

Hypergrid Adventurers Club meet #23: Exploring Nuclear Research at CERN

For today’s meeting, we explored the region CERN on New World Grid.

In real life, CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research.  The instruments used at CERN are particle accelerators and detectors.  Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before they are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions.

The region CERN on New World Grid features detailed recreations of real life architecture at CERN as well self-guided tours of models of particle accelerators.

Read on for a full transcript and many photos of our adventure.
