It’s my birthday today, and as a present to me the Large Hadron Collider will be turned on tomorrow. Thanks, International Community!
The History channel is joining in the celebration by broadcasting a special documentary on the LHC. David E. Kaplan, the host of the special, explains why you should watch it.
(While I’m on the subject, Clayton Brown and Monica Ross have made a documentary about particle accelerators. See their blog for more information, including the bit about the premier in Chicago on Sept. 19th.)
