This video from AMNH tells us more about the tiny creatures from the sea floor! 


small Hadron Collider in Every smartphone!

An example of simulated data modelled for the CMS particle detector on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Here, following a collision of two protons, a is produced which decays into two jets of hadrons and two electrons. The lines represent the possible paths of particles produced by the proton-proton collision in the detector while the energy these particles deposit is shown in blue. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)As the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is fired up for its round two of investigations by CERN, the scientific community waits for fresh findings from the single largest machine ever built by mankind. The last time, the LHC was fired up, it was able to generate substantial data to show that the Higgs Boson was not just a theorized particle but something that actually existed inside an atom. Naturally, hopes from this massive particle accelerator are huge and in the past two years, the machine has been armed to accelerate particles twice as fast and there are some serious answer…

If you have a small garden in your balcony, chances are you've seen these busy birds come by at least once a day. Consuming their weight in nectar everyday, its amazing to watch these dainty little bird go about their business.
