Help Us Make A Cloud Chamber

This March, as a special project for our Make Afternoon social, we’ll be making a cloud chamber.  Invented in 1911, it’s a tool that makes cosmic particle visible to the naked eye as they travel through a cloud of alcohol vapors. We’ll be able to identify protons, electrons, and many other particles by the trails they leave as they travel through the mist:

We should have all the materials we need to create this chamber, but check out the directions if you’d like to help us put it together. And, as always, be sure to RSVP!

Donations help us rent spaces to make more cool stuff in (and keep us in tea!)
