My last LHC mention, probably


Best and last LHC quote of the day from the BBC website, originally quoted (I think) by Prof. Brian Cox, ex keyboard player with D'Ream.

"After the minor controversy about David Kings remarks on Monday morning about the value of CERN, we note that CERN costs quite literally peanuts: UK taxpayers spend 80M quid per year at CERN, whilst in 2006 (the last year for which we could find figures) we spent 120M quid on peanuts."


By the way, do your homework on the LHC (in case you haven't been keeping up with the hype) and then search for "The Genuine Particle" on the BBC iPlayer (if you are in an area that can receive the interwb signal from Aunty) otherwise BitTorrent it...

Large Hadron Collider


People of Earth....you have fallen into our trap, now

Push....
The....
BUTTON!

The Hollingsworth family eagerly anticipate the first proper experiment using CERN's Large Hadron Collider (it has already been turned on, see here).
We're all VERY confident that all will go well, and happily, we are all actually interested in whats going on!
