So Close and Such a Stranger: the documentary

We are proud to release the documentary in which we have been working so hard for more than a year. Hope you enjoy it. And if in the meantime it helps in the understanding of what Condensed Matter Physics is, our goal would have been satisfied.

These are the Diaries of the So Close Project

This project's main goal is to create a short documentary explaining the meaning and the impact of Condensed Matter Physics, a branch of human activity that is as amazing as it is unknown by the general public. This audiovisual product will describe the main concepts and systems that belong to this field of physics, and the most important advances made in science and in technology in the last 120 years.

More than a Documentary

Besides posting about the project evolution, we would like this site to hold news and articles on Condensed Matter Physics. We would like to talk with the scientists that are currently pushing the boundaries of Condensed Matter Physics and hear about their job. And finally, we would also like you to participate.
