Physics - sexy? Who'd have thought it.
As a scientist I think all this coverage of the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) is really great. It's good for science to be in the news, because science is a good thing. But as a biologist with embarrasingly little understanding of particle physics, I have to admit to finding some of the concepts involved a bit mind-blowing and rather daunting. [But then I find looking at the stars and thinking about the distances and galaxies and light years a bit too much for my tiny brain to take in.] There's a good introduction to the LHC and what it does on the BBC news site. Pictured is Google's logo for the day. Nice one.
