From 12 May to 4 June, residents of Latvia can find out about the activities and the scientific achievements of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) when the CERN – Science Accelerator exhibition will be open at the National Library of Latvia. Entrance is free.

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to take five steps into the unknown, seeking answers to the question of how the Universe was formed, and find out about CERN's fundamental physics research. Taking the first step, visitors will learn about the Big Bang, the second step will take them into the field of particles and matter, the third will reveal the secrets of the universe, the fourth present the Large Hadron Collider and the fifth show where we encounter scientific discoveries in our everyday lives.

School groups are particularly welcome to explore the exhibition where, with free guides, they can learn about CERN – the exclusive high-energy, particle-physics research centre where globally significant discoveries are made. The fundamentals of particle physics will be explained to students and demonstrations show how the world's greatest scientists are endeavouring to discover still unknown particles and gain a deeper understanding of the Universe's origins.
