The exhibition Art & Science at the Balloon museum in Château d'Oex presents art works from Michael Hoch from CERN on the discovery of cosmic rays with balloon flights pioneering modern particle physics.

The temporary exhibtion is relating to the history of the discovery of cosmic rays, with the balloon flights of Gockel, Hess and Kolhörster, to discoveries made with cosmics rays on high altitude research stations as the Jungfraujoch, and leading to modern particle physics.

Michael Hoch and Hans Peter Beck are the main contributors to the Art & Science exhibition at the Balloon museum in Château d'Oex

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

On 25 January 2020, a balloon flight took place 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.
