Among the activities will be a link up with Nobel laureates and other physicists at the 2005 Solvay conference in Brussels; "The late show with Leon Lederman" from Fermilab near Chicago, featuring interviews with young physicists, demonstrations and live music; and discussions about the past and future of the Web from the CERN laboratory in Geneva and Imperial College in London. There will also be a live connection to the Ice Cube neutrino experiment at the South Pole and a videoconference with the VIRGO gravitational wave experiment near Pisa.

The event is being held as part of the 2005 World Year of Physics.
