    I kind of wish they didn't find anything, that would of kept physicists busy for decades. Oh yeah and if we need something even bigger than the LHC some of the work has already been Done

    If they need spare parts for the LHC why not try kickstarter? :D

    I seriously doubt Physicists will come up with a complete and tested unified theory of everything and its uncle in my lifetime, so it was kind of critical they turned up something sooner rather than later. Politicians always need a reason to keep funding big science, especially if it doesn't do anything cool like get you to the moon.

    Hmm. I'm quite involved in this one! If you knew the work that went in to making sure we hadn't fucked up... :-(

    Anyway my personal bet is more data will make this anomaly go away, but unfortunately we're about to shut down for upgrades and so it'll be a couple of years before we know for certain (though we still have more data to process from this run, it's unlikely to be definitive).

    Are you saying the LHC is actually a laser containment field for ghosts? I can't wait to see the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

    But I no longer want to shag Sigourney Weaver.

    Hmm. I dunno about that, but I'd be keeping a very careful eye out for any chest-area disturbances...

    Nothing to do around 7pm?
    Why not tune into the CERN science stand up comedy night?

    spindizzy do you know any atmospheric physicists (I think) at CERN? I met one t'other day.

    So far the scientists have been better than the professionals.

    Anyone still think CERN is secretly a device for sending Jodie Foster away from this world?

    Just me then.

    I doubt it's more complicated than a PS3
