A high energy demonstration of science and fiction

Why can you sometimes hear voices in loudspeakers when nothing at all is running?
What note do we have to sing to make the stage vibrate?
Could the whole audience together blow out a candle on the stage?
What do tach ions look like if they travel faster than light?
Why is there more matter than antimatter?
Is there a second world with more antimatter than matter?
What does the inside of a black hole look like?
How can small black holes be produced in the CERN without swallowing the CERN?
How can physicists simulate a big bang without a sound being heard?
What came first: physics or science fiction?
Can we be children for ever?
Why was an accelerator built at CERN for three billion to find a particle that the theoreticians have long proved exists?
Who invests three billion when everyone at CERN swears that the LEP ring has nothing to do with military research?
Why does Siemens Germany give the production of fuel-rod changers for atomic power stations to its French subsidiary Fratom?
Why is the Vienna Institute for Radiology now called the Institute for Isotope Research?
Why do physicists speak of beams even if it’s a false description of the experiment?
Is there a physicist in the house?
Why did the SPÖ build a reactor?
Why did the ÖVP block this reactor?
Would you as the government invest in science or in art?
Would you as the government invest in applied or in fundamental research?
Why, now that we know the work of Jan Hendrik Schön has been invented, isn’t it subsidised even more?
Shall we carry on acting?
Do you think life will get better?
Do you want life to get better?
What can we say about things that only exist in theory?
Can we speak of that which does not exist?
Can one tell a fairy story with mathematics?
How can one imagine this room seen from another dimension? .
Can we know everything?
Will we then stop asking questions?
