 What is Astro. Particle Physics ? KEY QUESTIONS AND METHODS üWhat is the What is Astro. Particle Physics ? KEY QUESTIONS AND METHODS üWhat is the Universe made of ? üNature of dark matter and energy üUse rare processes (neutrino properties , proton decay) to probe the first instants of the Universe üWhat is the origin of cosmic rays? What is the nature of violent cosmic phenomena ? üUse new messengers beyond light and radio waves (high energy photons , neutrinos, charged particles, gravitational waves) to probe the « interior » of violent cosmic processes Observatories deployed üIn the desert (AUGER/Argentina, HESS/Namibia) üIn large planes (GW antenna Virgo/Pisa) üUnderground (Gran Sasso/Fréjus/Camfrance/Boulby) üUnderwater (Mediterannean ANTARES/NEMO/NESTOR) üIn space (FERMI, /PAMELA, AMS at the ISS) üRICH INTERFACE WITH ENVIRONMENT AND GEOSCIENCE ECSITE Conference – Stavros Katsanevas / ASPERA – June 2009 üASTROPARTICLE PHYSICS HAS A RICH OUTREACH POTENTIAL

Federating a community through a European outreach project 10 -17 October 2009: European week Federating a community through a European outreach project 10 -17 October 2009: European week of astroparticle physics Celebrating the 100 th anniversary of first cosmic rays experiments • In the frame of IYA 2009, we are mobilising physicists, laboratories, sites of experiments to organize big or small events • Open days, talks for the general public, exhibitions… With events organized all over Europe, astroparticle physicists will meet the general public and explain the challenges they face • Science centres are very welcome to organize things in this frame, we are open to collaborations, providing for instance speakers for public talks… • More information to come on: www. astroparticle. org ECSITE Conference – Stavros Katsanevas / ASPERA – June 2009

Federating a community through a European outreach project 10 -17 October 2009: European week Federating a community through a European outreach project 10 -17 October 2009: European week of astroparticle physics: 2 large events as examples Roma: first large exhibition fully dedicated to astroparticle physics • Developped by the three major Italian institutes involved in astroparticle physics INFN, INAF & ASI, the 600 square-metres exhibition will be inaugurated during the week in an art Museum in Roma. Paris: Back to the Eiffel Tower • In October 6 1909 , Austrian physicist Theodor Wulf presented important indices that the radiation increases when going up the Eiffel Tower. • To celebrate this discovery leading to the discovery of cosmic rays, we propose to install a cosmic rays detector at the Eiffel Tower that would trigger the towers illumination, accompanied with multiplexed TV presentations from key astroparticle experimental sites….

Citizens science Examples Eurocosmics • Cosmic rays abundantly fall on earth (300/sec through any Citizens science Examples Eurocosmics • Cosmic rays abundantly fall on earth (300/sec through any person). Many European countries (Belgium, Greece, France, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, …) have developed portable detectors deployed in schools detecting cosmic rays, forming coincidences, permitting data analysis. They have recently formed a consortium. [email protected] • Modern technology permits to repeat the historical experiment of Penzias and Wilson detecting the Cosmological Microwave Background with relatively small equipment …. Direct internet link with the ocean floor (project) • Underwater neutrino telescopes permit an online monitoring of the ocean floor for schools and science centres. Developed in Canada (Neptune), in progress in Europe ECSITE Conference – Stavros Katsanevas / ASPERA – June 2009
