EPS Young Minds: Physics Escape Room

The goal of a good communicator must be to seek new ways to arise interest and curiosity, to involve the observers as much as possible and to make them an active part of what is being done. With this belief, the Young Minds section of Naples PONYS (Physics and Optics Naples Young Students) has created a Physics-themed escape room, presented for the first time at the 33rd edition of the "Futuro Remoto" scientific festival, held in Naples from 21 to 24 November 2019.

Tactile Collider: science is for everyone

Important milestone for KM3NeT

With the installation of two more detection units at the French site of KM3NeT, the first phase of building the ORCA detector of the KM3NeT neutrino telescope is completed. Since 27 January 2020, the detector is taking data with six detection units. The first candidate neutrino events are already seen.

Roland Eötvös (1848-1919): new souvenirs

Last year Hungary solemnly commemorated, under the aegis of UNESCO, the centenary of the passing away of Roland Eötvös (1848-1919), the founding father of Geophysics. As is generally known, Eötvös developed the ‘torsion balance’ carrying his name, an instrument sufficiently sensitive to charter the variation of gravitation in the field.
