100 + 1 YEARS OF RUTHERFORD

INSIDE THE ATOM: UNDERSTANDING MATTER OF THE BIG BANG

 

 

AN RSVP IS REQUIRED FOR THIS FREE LECTURE. SEE BELOW.

Over 100 years ago E. Rutherford discovered in his groundbreaking experiment the atomic nucleus,allowing for the first time to look inside an atom. This discovery changed our view of the world and allowed us to start an exciting journey in order to satisfy mankind's curiosity to explain what really holds the world together.

Even after 100 years the basic principle established by Rutherford in how to look inside matter is still applied.But in addition to looking even deeper inside matter,it is also possible to recreate a "little big bang" in the laboratory, allowing us to study and look inside the matter created shortly after the Big Bang.
