Daniel Bernoulli's Physics Cabinet in Basel distinguished EPS Historic Site

On 22nd September, the former home of the Physics Cabinet of Daniel Bernoulli in Basel was inaugurated as an EPS Historic Site.

During his time at the University of Basel, Daniel Bernoulli assembled a large collection of demonstration experiments which he used for teaching and public lectures. These were housed in the Stachelschützenhaus ("house of the crossbow men"). The building is still used by the university and is currently the centre for clinical virology.
