What’s more awesome than the Large Hadron Collider? It’s a trick question. Obviously the answer is nothing. Who can think about books when the LHC is out there doing its thing?
A round-up of my favorite LHC links:
- LHC Home Page
- The National Geographic’s article and photo gallery from March 2008 are brilliant.
- This XKCD cartoon is chuckle-worthy.
- Straight outta Geneva! Don’t miss the LHC Rap featuring the world’s funkiest PhD physicists
- Wired’s pictures
- The New York Times‘ article and interactive feature
- PhD Comics drop some LHC science on you in comic form
- As we now know, the world was not consumed by black holes when the LHC was fired up. Whew, right? But who has time to continually monitor the situation? Check in with the helpful web site Has the Large Hadron Collider Destroyed the World Yet throughout the day to stay up to date regarding the world’s current status.

Gotta run. I’m keeping an eye out for a Higgs boson.
