I actually quite like the theory that the large hadron collider is being sabotaged by its own future, as nicely summarised by Dennis Overbye in the New York Times this week.
I was actually in Geneva a week or so back at a conference, I was wondering then how long it would be before they’d found enough clean helium to fire it all up again. Bad choice of words perhaps, anyway, now we know – ‘soon’.
The theory that the particle they are trying to create in Switzerland is being thwarted by nature itself, in a sort of Terminator go-back-in-time and fix-what’s-broken mode, is brilliant.
I rate this photographer’s images and sounds from within, they are a little old but it puts an interesting 360 degree perspective on the project and you can actually hear the engineers working, nice touch.
