large hardon collider

sadly, they've fixed the typo now, but yes, the telegraph actually displayed this headline for several hours today.


thanks to all who informed me of this cock-up!

The Large Hadron Collider scares me enough as it is...but THIS?!?! The end must be nigh...

How large is this Large Hardon Collider? Will this create a unescapable black hole? What will we discover? Will the Higgs Bosom particle be finally found? Oh I'm so excited, I can't wait no longer!

I like the fact that this post attracts ads for male grooming products...

Sorry, too delicious to miss...

Astropixie,
You know Pete Coles. He taught me cosmology at Queen Mary (MSc) back 1995/1996. Anyhow he was quite amused when he got back proofs of his Cosmology text-book (forget the exact name - got one kicking about the house - and rather than "hadron era" it had the typo "hardon era".

True story.
