LHC On Blogs March 6, 2008

The small wheel (sensor array) arrives at CERNLHC has shown up on some blogs in the tech-sector recently. Gizmodo has some fantastic pictures of the ATLAS detector under construction.

Scoble also got a tour of the LHC, led around by Frank Taylor, a prof from MIT I know. Scoble has a huge readership in the world of tech-blogging (one of the “a-list” bloggers).

I like these efforts – inviting non-particle physicists into our field and everything we do takes continuous work. After all, most people don’t live this science day and day out – and when we suddenly show up with a new W mass measurement… well, hard to expect people to get excited out-of-the-box. The only way it works is continuous communication – and these sorts of things are just the ticket.
