The freeBig Bang ARapp for iOS and Android invites students to join Tilda Swinton and CERN scientists on an epic, mixed-reality journey through the birth and evolution of our Universe. They will go back 13.8 billion years and discover how space, time, and the visible Universe came to be. The app immerses students in the primordial mystery of the early Universe in space as events unfold around them, in their own physical environment. They will learn about the microscopic building blocks that make up everything—and everyone—they know and find out if they really are made of stars. They will see the Universe form as they stretch out their hand in front of their camera; and they will be able to create the very first particles and atoms, make a star explode, create a supernova, and explore the nebula.
