HiLumi3D is a vitual reality (VR) platform that allows you to navigate through an early design of some of the future infrastructures of the HL-LHC Project
The HL-LHC (High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider, sometimes abbreviated as HiLumi) is a major upgrade of the LHC machine, one of the largest scientific instruments ever built. The main objective is to increase the luminosity (rate of collisions) by a factor of ten by the year 2025, and to continue exploring the mysteries of our Universe. HiLumi represents an exceptional technological challenge that will be overcome with cutting-edge technologies. The HiLumi3D app currently allows you to explore an artistic view of two different areas:
- The future surface buildings around Point 5, in Cessy (France)
- The future service gallery meant to host some of the new HiLumi technical equipment
This is just a first glimpse, our first ideas. You will discover the final results in the coming years. This app is developed as a collaboration between CERN and the Lapland University of Applied Sciences (Lapin AMK).
