  1. Ha – my boy just came home and told me that science class today was discussing the IHC and how small any black holes that eventually will be created will be “so once the rest of the class understood that they weren’t worried any more”.
    This didn’t stop one of the other kids trying to persuade another teacher that they should just play games for the class period, “because it would be the last afternoon of our lives”. The teacher didn’t fall for it.

  2. Fermilab are having a pyjama party. I like that. I hope they all remembered their towels – just in case.

  3. This is as good a place as any to post a photo of this astonishingly beautiful helical plasma confinement device.


    I can’t stop looking at it.

  4. That really is amazingly gorgeous.

  5. There really are some beautiful pictures of the LHC. Can’t remember where, but they are stunning.

  6. The source code is funneh, as well.
    (See also.)

  7. Well now it’s broken down anyway. Probably got melted mozzarella in the works. (I just love ‘hard’ science coverage, don’t you?)
