So, if you want to feel the non-fictional magic the CERN and (particle) physics has to offer; http://visit.cern/tours which provides all the needed information for a unforgettable tour.
And if you are lucky enough to be there on the right day, you may even be treated to a tour by Warwick’s physics Professor Bill Murray.
Professor Dr. Brian Keating (La Jolla, California.)
Brian Keating is a professor of physics at the Center for Astrophysics & Space Sciences (CASS) in the Department of Physics at the University of California, San Diego. He is a public speaker, inventor, and an expert in the study of the universe’s oldest light, the cosmic microwave background (CMB), using it to learn about the origin and evolution of the universe.
Keating is a pioneer in the search for the earliest physical evidence of the inflationary epoch, the theorized period of expansion of space in the early universe directly after the Big Bang. https://briankeating.com/

Since the 1980s Andy has been researching the paranormal and is involved in regular investigations. During this time his understanding has evolved to incorporate a more rational and scientific approach. He is a member of The Society for Psychical Research and the Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena and the pioneering Ghost Club established in 1862. Andy values his contact with clients while respecting their own paranormal experiences. https://www.paranormalresearchinvestigators.co.uk/
Nick Howe (UK)
Nick’s involvement with the paranormal developed through an interest in religion, although of no faith it became apparent that the paranormal was a common theme of belief. Coupling this with personal experiences he was staggered by the number of events family, friends and acquaintances also experienced. On retirement he felt it was time to devote more time to studying this which culminated in the formation of PRI UK. Nick is also a member of The Society for Psychical Research and the Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena and the Ghost Club. https://www.paranormalresearchinvestigators.co.uk/

Dean Knight (Kentucky, USA)
Hunting may be a strong word for “The Kentucky Ghost Hunter”, yet accurate.
Even Dean was always taught not to be on the wrong page of a two page novel, he always knew there is something out there, something we do not yet understand because of the limited knowledge our understanding sees it as being complicated… maybe even impossible. Calculating his hunting techniques Dean brings the unknown towards himself. Once found, he is determined to prove exactly what it is that goes bumping in the night. https://kentuckyghosthunter.com
Lynn Kathlen Russell ( Lethbridge, Alberta)
Lynn is the mother of 3, and worked for 28 years as a family counselor. As she got the chance to the research of 2500 near-death experiences for Dr. Jeffery Long the spiritual knowledge coming back inspired her to write the book, ‘THE WONDER OF YOU’ which is covering a very wide range of experiences, including her own, Lynn took her 20 year experience in workshops one step further and developed two more; “The Spirituality of Science” and “Near-Death and Beyond” in where she uses science to show participants the magnificent spiritual beings we are.
