Large-format and fascinating images from basic research will be presented by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) from July 16 to August 10, 2022, in this year’s EFFEKTE series on Karlsruhe’s Kronenplatz. A complementary program of experiments, round tables and conferences will accompany the exhibition. The media are invited to the opening on July 16 at the TRIANGEL Open Space. KIT also participates in several “Science Tuesdays” as part of the EFFEKTE series.
Understanding the world is the goal of fundamental research in the world. Researchers penetrate the smallest and largest dimensions, from the tiniest particles to the frontiers of the universe. An exhibition of the European research center CERN presented by the KIT with the support of the city of Karlsruhe shows the fascination of this research. Large photo panels tell stories of efforts to understand the universe and show how these have led to a number of new scientific breakthroughs and technological achievements.
The KIT Center for Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics (KCETA) brought the exhibit to Karlsruhe.
