IT MAY not be fundamental physics, but one top mind at CERN is adamant that Galway will win the hurling final replay.

Dr Rolf Landua, head of education at CERN, the European organisation for nuclear research and home of the Large Hadron Collider, was opening the Accelerating Science exhibition in Galway. And he certainly got the home crowd on side with his predictions.

"I believe Galway will win the replay. I cross my fingers and they have my support," he said.

At the exhibition, students who ranged in age from 11 to 18 got up close and personal with some of the mysteries of the universe -- from the Big Bang to the present day, covering everything from dark matter to the invention of the internet.

The exhibition will run from September 17 to November 2. For more information visit www.galwayscience.ie.
