Description: This virtual reality model of the Belle II experiment at the KEK laboratory in Japan shows the marvels of the subatomic world, where matter and antimatter collide at nearly the speed of light, converting energy to matter and back again according to Einstein’s famous formula E = mc squared, all in the blink of an eye. Watch and control the simulation of each collision event in which an electron and its antimatter counterpart collide and morph into other forms of subatomic matter that move through the Belle II apparatus.
Review: Unless you have some interest in particle colliders you are not going to get much out of ‘Belle II in Virtual Reality’ because it really is little more than a tool for those with an interest in what happens inside of one. While it was all above my head I still enjoyed seeing the particles fly about in random directions. At least it is free for those that might want to look at it and I suppose I do have to give credit for an odd use of VR I never thought possible.
