Voyage to the Heart of Matter: A Pop-Up Book

Voyage to the Heart of Matter, by Anton Radevsky and Emma Sanders is one of those amazingly unique and wonderfully creative books – a pop-up book recreating the Large Hadron Collider, the $9 billion European science experiment exploring the very essence of “the stuff we’re made on.”

Wired Magazine explores the creation of this intriguing book in Backstory: Making the Large Hadron Collider Pop-Up Book:

“. . . before the collider opened, tens of thousands of visitors packed in to see it. Now that it’s up and running, however, the facility is generally off-limits. ‘To a lot of people, the experiments at the LHC might as well be a black box,’ Sanders says. ‘They’re very excited about it, but they don’t have a clue how it works.’ This book makes the science accessible. Dark matter—visible at last!”
