On Saturday we visited the permanent exhibition at CERN near Geneva.  Among the exhibits they had some sound-pods, armchairs that enveloped you while you listen to an audio guide available in four languages.  These weren’t necessarily  translations of each other, so it was worthwhile listening to more than one version.   In one narration, I loved this restrained opening line:

 

‘The universe is a puzzling place.  It’s very big, quite old, and rather empty.’   Quite.
