Particle Fever – Unravel the mysteries of the Large Hadron Collider



If you’ve been reading this blog, you already know my keen interest in the Universe, Dark Matter, Quantum Physics, and of course, the Higgs Boson. You may also know my doppelganger, adventurous space traveler Max Von Sama who left for Kepler-186f on board the Sama Airship last April after NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope discovered the first ...

Higgs boson: our understanding of the universe is about to change



I’m not saying it, CERN is: Higgs within reach – Our understanding of the universe is about to change… Scientists may have found the so-called Goddamn particle, eventually. Or at least what we would expect to see from the decay of a Higgs boson, which is part of a theory first proposed by physicist Peter Higgs in the 1960s. But scientists ... More
The web was invented in France, not Switzerland!

Last month, David Galbraith updated his article published in July 2010, and in which he was investigating the location where the web was invented: “One of the more interesting consequences of the details below, that hasn’t been picked up anywhere, is that technically the web was invented in France, not Switzerland”. Great news but ... More
Join the hunt for the Higgs boson and alien life!

CERN built the world’s largest grid computing resource and now anyone with Internet connectivity and a computer can participate by helping run more simulation of particle physics. ‘Those who want to volunteer will download an x86 Sun Microsystems virtualization software package called VirtualBox, which runs the Monte Carlo simulations on home ...

Global particle physics photowalk and Atlas mural at CERN

Who said particle physics and Art were two different things? On August 7, 2010, more than 200 amateur photographers from around the world had the rare opportunity to experience state-of-the-art accelerators and detectors in all of their complexity and beauty as part of the first Particle Physics Photowalk. And I wish I could have experienced it too. Now ... More
