Or thereabouts. They’re going to turn on the Large Hadron Collider then. That reminds me, I’ve started reading a science blog called Cosmic Variance because my favorite Science Times writer Dennis Overbye mentioned he reads it. Even if you don’t think you’re interested in science articles, just try reading Dennis Overbye every Tuesday for a while, when he has a piece in the Times. You’ll be surprised, I think.
Cosmic Variance is good too, for keeping up with what is newsy for physicists. It’s California Institute of Technology physicist Sean Carroll’s blog. Actually no, I just read the “about” page and it’s a group blog, not just Carroll’s. I watched a video of Sean Carroll and his wife, also a scientist, on YouTube, and now I forget what it was about (and his wife’s name, sorry!) but I remember enjoying it. I’ll bet there’s a nice love story there.
