In Ideas, Friendship, and Things that go Bang in the Dark

One of my cousins pulled me aside to interrogate me on CERN, particle physics, and why on earth people are making doomsday predictions. (In response to all doomsday predictions: Has the Large Hadron Collider destroyed the earth?)

I need to delay writing up a lay-cousins’ interpretation of CERN for the moment (thesis beckons!), but I can give you a scattering of links:

– the now-infamous CERN-rap for those who like getting their particle physics in a rhyming format.
– amazingly beautiful photos of the assembly that bring out my love of industrial art.
– the education comic for the folks who like getting their particle physics in an animated format, and the made-me-gigglesnort comic for those who already know their particle physics and like to snicker about quark innuendos.
– the formal technical info who don’t understand why anyone would go for all this cutesy stuff in relation to particle physics.
