Cosmic Ray Cloud Chamber

Nov 7, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

…of high-energy particles with cloud chambers!

Did you know that, with just a jar, some rubbing alcohol, a bit of dry ice and some ingenuity, you could build your own cosmic ray detector – a “cloud chamber,” which lets you see traces of high-energy particles. (Isn’t science COOL?) Look no further for instruction how!
