Manchester in 1985. The year before I left to go to Uni. I don't remember so much of it being in monochrome...

Jon Butterworth: Dark Matter is high on the list of possible discoveries in the next run of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. However, depending on what Dark Matter actually is, shining light through walls might get there first

what about the neutrinos in all of this, and why are they so light when the top quark is so heavy? L'asimmetria dipende dalla velocità di rotazione; spin (lunghezza d'onda; energia) ma anche dalla velocità lungo la direzione di marcia (ampiezza d'onda)! Diminuendo questi valori l'asimmetria e quindi la gravità diminuisce, e un fermione diventa leggero quasi quanto un bosone.

The Large Hadron Collider Quiz, now with answers to Questions 1-6: http://www.theguardian.com/science/life-and-physics/2015/feb/08/large-hadron-collider-are-you-ready-for-run-2 … #RestartLHC (added today, bosons, fermions & ZZZ)
CERN will restart its physics rollercoaster in May, at higher energies than ever before. But are you ready for it? Have you learned the lessons of Run 1? What the hell is that thing in the picture? Take this quiz to find out!

Jon Butterworth: Quarks and gluons make weird slopes and shapes inside the proton. Understanding them precisely was important for the first results from Cern’s Large Hadron Collider, and continues to be so as we approach the restart over the next few weeks

Thank you for sharing +Jonathan Butterworth il gluone come particella che porta via quantità di moto, è una buona spiegazione, ma possiamo considerare anche una seconda spiegazione, http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matrioska e ovviamente più è piccola e minore è la sua lunghezza d'onda, E=nhv. Qualcosa che somiglia a questo: http://gu.nu/n4P

And finally, all the answers, including the 'mystery' picture:

Encouraging women to pursue advanced education creates a dysgenic fertility situation whereby the most competent women have the fewest children, the opposite of how one would ordinarily expect survival of the fittest to manifest. It makes the average inherent aptitude of persons in such a society diminish with each generation.

I had a chat the the "Institute for Art and Ideas" about truth & beauty & things, and they wrote it up... Here's the result.
E=mc2. Einstein's great equation represents a pinnacle of mathematical purity. But as the evidence piles up which general relativity struggles to account for, is the very elegance of Einstein's theories preventing scientists from updating them? Is there always beauty in truth, or are aesthetics ...
