There's a live webcam of the LHC here in case anyone wants to see what's going on:

Dedicate your spare computer time to the LHC:

And by me, I mean, Flexo.

Mmm, I saw a one-liner on that before and wondered what they did to it, sounds like they don't know yet though.

The liquid helium leaked, which is exactly what this American physicist man told me would happen. I get all my news from Americans these days.
Toot toot.

Poor Hadron thread.

Here is a photo I took of my cat the day it was turned on. I've just now figured out how to get photos of my phone without the stupid cord that I lost.

When are they firing that bad boy back up?

I've got a bunch of work I've been putting off until the end of the world.
This is bad comedy.

LHC detects signs of new physics

After nearly 6 months of smashing particles, the Large Hadron Collider has seen signs of something entirely new. Pairs of charged particles produced when two beams of protons collide seem to be associated with each other even after they fly apart.

I'm popping in to recommend the Particle Fever documentary. I didn't start watching it expecting to get emotional, but shortly in felt a lump in my throat and was in tears by the end. It's worth watching for David Kaplan's reply to an economist about the value of the project, a reply that gave me a little more hope for humanity.

P.S. Over 4,000 views of my cat above? He's famous!

Watched it last night. Amazing! Kaplan v the economist was ace, as was That Bit With Peter Higgs. I truly lost it then.

Anyone with access to the BBC Iplayer should try to catch it before it's gone: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0 ... iggs-boson

The Peter Higgs bit was the bit that had me in tears! So good.
