“Dave,I’m never getting that in the back of my Volvo”
Ok, seriousness is bliss. THE most exiting event of 2008 is when some geeky spud kicks the plug in for the LHC. Large Hadron Collider. I’m not here to teach you…you’ve got an internet, use it. Suffice to say,either the standard model is verified and we get to check out a Higg’s boson, or super-symmetry pops in with a neutralino or two. Either way it’s gonna be a MAJOR EVENT. Now, I’ve had a bot. of cheeky malbec, but as I understand it, there is a possibility of micro-black holes showing their faces that then would decay via Hawking radiation which means…a Nobel prize for our be-wheelchaired hero!!
Even if you are an ignorant pleb, the beauty of the LHC is undeniable…it’s a sci-fi art form. And as the guys at CERN say : ” The results of LHC experiments will probably change our fundamental knowledge of the universe.” Maybe you’re not bothered about that. Maybe you should be. After all,we’re all a part of this human project, however small a part you choose to play. Let’s explore the future.
