Summary

Developed seven years ago, the ANTARES project is the result of the collaboration between three French and European laboratories: the CNRS, the CEA and the IFREMER. Its aim is to detect and study the very high energy cosmic neutrinos thanks to the first underwater neutrino telescope in the whole world, settled at a depth of 2 500 meters at the bottom of the sea.
There is a short version of this film (6 min) entitled “The Neutrinos of Antares”.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
