Swiss Chocolate and the Origins of the Universe
This year, as one of the Intel ISEF Special Awards, a dozen Finalists earned the opportunity to tour CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. Located in Geneva, Switzerland, CERN is a leading laboratory for particle physics where scientists research big questions like the origins of the universe. The Intel ISEF students attended lectures with world-renowned scientists, observed some of the world’s most complex scientific instruments, and, of course, enjoyed the city of Geneva and Swiss chocolate.
“I felt that the CERN trip was a good fusion of a cultural and scientific experiences…I spoke in French and listened to lectures on particle physics; I ate real pizza and was as close to the LHC [Large Hadron Collider] as I’ll ever be...what could be better?” says student Mubarrat Nuvid Bhuiyan, from Jericho, New York.

The Martian moon Phobos is cratered, lumpy and about 16.8 miles long, or 3 miles longer than the island of Manhattan. According to a recent study, the moon is also unusually light. Planetary scientists found that Phobos is probably not a solid object, and that as much as 30 percent of the moon’s interior may be empty space. Read More
