Neutrino - poet among particles / Science Cafe Enschede Science Cafe Enschede

Neutrinos go right through everything and are therefore difficult to detect. Scientists have come up with something to bring these ghost particles to light anyway. In Japan, 1000 metres underground in a former mine, they built the Super-Kamiokande. A gigantic vat of pure water with 11,000 detectors. Filmmakers Hannie van den Bergh and Jan van den Berg filmed Super-K and spoke to scientists and villagers. While the residents mainly have their eyes on the visible mountains, trees and animals, the scientists look at invisible neutrinos, hoping to unravel the origin of the universe.

Screening of the poetic-philosophical documentary Neutrino, the poet among elementary particles + discussion afterwards with Hannie van den Bergh and Jan van den Berg and neutrino expert Prof Dr Patrick Decowski (UvA). In cooperation with Concordia Cinema, KIVI Students Twente and Arago. No reservations possible. On 15 October, free tickets can be collected from Concordia's box office from 19:30.

Lecture in Dutch.
