Balloon flight to commemorate the Albert Gockel's flight of 1909

On 25 January 2020, a balloon flight is planned to commemorate Albert Gockel's flight of 1909, where he measured the ionisation of air up to 4500 m altitude. Even though Albert Gockel did not speak of cosmic rays at the time, and expressed some doubts about the reliability of his instruments, this Swiss physicist can still be counted among the discoverers of cosmic rays.

About the movie "Les Particules" by Blaise Harrison.

Elementary particle physics and the large-scale CERN research facility have repeatedly inspired artists to engage with modern scientific research. The latest example is the movie 'Les Particules' by French-Swiss filmmaker Blaise Harrison (39). In this art piece scientific research serves as an escape and dream world for an adolescent.
