Join Tilda Swinton and CERN scientists on an epic interactive journey through the birth and evolution of the universe – in mixed reality. Go back in time 13.8 billion years and discover how space, time and the visible universe came to be.
See the universe form in the palm of your hand. Witness the formation of the very first stars, our solar system, and the planet we call home. Immerse yourself in the primordial mystery of the early universe in space and watch events unfold around you, in your own physical environment.
Learn about the microscopic building blocks that make up everything – and everyone – we know, and find out if we really are made of stars.
See the universe form as you stretch out your hand in front of your camera. Create the very first particles and atoms. Make a star explode, create a supernova and explore the nebula. See our solar system come together and hold the Earth in the palm of your hand.
Find out how we are made from stars, take a #starselfie and share it with your friends.
