Video: Colliding Particles, or “What the hell is the Large Hadron Collider for?”

Do you know why the Large Hadron Collider actually exists, besides looking spiffy and putting the fear of instant void in evening newscasters? Watch “Colliding Particles: Hunting the Higgs“, a stylish series of films produced by Mike Paterson. The first is above, but they’re up to episode 4 now. Good stuff.

Update: I really didn’t mean to type “Large Hardon Collider”, but you would be right to think that is not beneath me.

    Don’t be so hard on yourself, Joel. We all make mistakes.

    Shouldn’t the joke be: “Don’t be so hadron yourself, Joel.”

    I am curious about the potential of opening a black hole into another dimension.

    I just watched the movie, “Howard The Duck”, and they managed to bring down a Dark Overlord of the Universe. How will they manage to prevent the introduction of the Dark Overlords into our reality?

    Well, when they finally get it running – on December 21st, 2012 – we’ll find out. Hmm..isn’t there some kind of calendar that ends somewhere around that date?
