“The Sun, the Moon, the Earth and its contents are material to form greater things, that is, ethereal things – greater things than the Creator himself has made” – John Keats, 1817

KOSMICA: Ethereal Things is a weekend of events exploring our intimate human connection with particle physics and the physics of the universe. Experience impossible situations, encounter the mysterious realm of subatomic physics, and unravel the cosmic web through experiments, performances, music and poetics.
