Higgs


Many of us who are not involved with the science world probably heard about the ground breaking Higgs Boson 'discovery' but had no idea what it is or the relevance of it. I had the pleasure of having an engineering friend try to explain it to me (with fervour) but it was hopeless - I just didn't really get it.

The artist Josef Kristofoletti was given the task of visualising this phenomenon and I get this one! A mural of the Large Hadron Collider, it's a homage to the discovery but also something pretty for the rest of us. Look at how it transforms those budget tilt slab walls! Remember humans built this enormous piece of equipment, but the sheer scale of it is wondrous.

This guy is a human printer.
