the bottle to bang - small pie collider - LHC

here are two very interesting and very different descriptions for how the large hadron collider (LHC) works.

the first is the "small pie collider" from an enthusiastic "mad scientist" who gets major points for creativity! (although the analogy doesnt relate all that well to the LCH, in my opinion.)

the second is an excellent visualization video called "the bottle to bang," created by chris mann at CERN.

Apparently we're to call the LHC "Halo" from now on. I wasn't aware the existing name lacked the necessary "oomph" to capture the public imagination. It certainly seems to have got a lot of people quite, er, excited.
