Which size and mass do the smallest particles of our universe have? How can such values be measured and which relevance do the new findings have – not only for science? These questions will be covered by scientists of the KIT Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics Center (KCETA) on Tuesday, January 20, 2015, at 18.30 hrs. At the Karlsruhe city hall, they will present exciting research relating to the Higgs particle and neutrino.


The presesentations will be made in the German language with a simultaneous translation into sign language. Parallel to the event, an exhibition of the KIT Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics Center will be organized in the upper hall of the City Hall from January 19 to 23, 2015.
