For the imachination project one of the crucial questions at the Jungfraujoch station was how the character of images has changed from the use of nuclear emulsions to the use of data measurements - or just in short terms "how images scatter into data". Read more conceptual details about the Imachinations in the context of nuclear physics.
Erwin Flückiger, director of the International Foundation High Altitude Research Stations Jungfraujoch and Gornergrat in Bern, made as student an important experience with nuclear emulisions: "My initiation to cosmic ray research was to watch a black star under the microscope". He sees an organizational difference between the high energy physics and cosmic ray research: the different sizes of the groups. (Read the whole interview...)
