The Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the UB will participate in the 27th Science Week from November 11th to 20th with various activities and talks. Below you will find our program with all the proposals:

 

WORKSHOP: "THE FORCE THAT UNITES US"

The protagonist of this activity is the strong nuclear force, which is responsible for holding together the particles and subparticles that make up the nuclei of atoms. Through dynamic and fun puzzles, we will get a better understanding of the laws that allow these particles to combine both on the scale of atomic nuclei with protons and neutrons and on the scale of the subparticles that make them up, the quarks.

By Assumpta Parreño, Arnau Ríos, Vincent Mathieu, Juan Torres, Íñigo Asiáin, Antonio Márquez (Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the University of Barcelona)

When? Tuesday, November 15th from 5pm to 7pm

Where? Casal de Barri La Verneda

 

TALK: "A ONE-WAY TICKET TO ETERNAL DARKNESS, PLEASE"

The darkness that can be seen on a moonless night reminds us of the distance to the other stars and objects in the Universe. Darkness is not only limited to the absence of light, it can also refer to the inability of the human mind to provide answers to the big questions. In this talk we will take a look at the history of cosmology. We will begin with the first ideas to explain the night sky in the past and end in the present day, where the dynamics of the Universe and its final destiny seem to be dominated by a mysterious entity, Dark Energy.

By Cristian Moreno (ICCUB)

When? Wednesday November 16 from 7pm to 8:30pm

Where? Ramon Fernández Jurado public library, Castelldefels

 

WORKSHOP: "QUANTUM MECHANICS SIMULATIONS"

The workshop consists of a set of computer simulations of various experiments in which the quantum properties of matter are revealed. Discover the most surprising phenomena of quantum mechanics, such as the tunnel effect, Heisenberg's uncertainty principle or the double slit experiment, by playing with our simulations of quantum systems.

By Bruno Juliá and Francesc Sabater

1st session: Wednesday, November 16th from 6pm to 7.30pm at the Vil·la Urània Civic Centre

2nd session: Thursday, November 17th  from 6pm to 7.30pm at the Casa Sagnier Youth Centre
