Universe of Particles

The entire universe is made up of particles, but where do they come from? What laws govern their behaviour? The purpose of the "Universe of Particles" exhibition is to allow visitors to discover the big questions of contemporary physics currently being explored by CERN via the LHC and other accelerators.
Dive into the fascinating universe of particles.
