LHC RAP

In an earlier post I was talking about the LHC they fired up in Geneva yesterday. If you read it, good. Hopefully you ignored the technical imperfections like me saying that the particles will crash head-on. They won’t. It will actually happen at an angle. And they are not technically trying to recreate THE BIG BANG. They are trying to recreate a moment in time just after it happened.

Once again – this is a big project. It is being done by the guys that invented the World Wide Web. So, if you want to know the technical aspects about it – feel free to Google LHC, or Large Hadron Collider. If you were lucky enough to do that yesterday – you got to see Google’s tribute to the launch of the LHC with the Google LHC Logo. If you missed it, google that and you will find it.

If, however you like your science more along the lines of Schoolhouse Rock then you should check out the video below.
