Particle Fever 
April 5, 2014


An exciting documentary about the launch of the LHC and discovery of the Higgs boson? Can't wait to screen it!



Sidenote: This might mark the largest gap between posts in the history of JSDC. It's due to the final edit on the novel. I didn't have need to research particle physics (the smallest research requirement was around -10.0) but I can't get enough of particle physics. I stayed up all night to watch CERN's Higgs announcement. And all science is somehow related to scifi, even if not directly cited in plot or setting.

I did spend quite a lot of time going over radiation and other space conditions with the novel's science consultant/astrophysicist. Plus, solar wind, the CHZ and gliding around the galaxy looking for exoplanets!
