Particle Physics Benefits: adding it up: more reasons for our country to invest more in STEM and less in the empty rhetoric that pollutes Guglielmo Marconi's contribution to our world, the "boob tube", the Internet, and our political process.

The strange case of solar flare and radioactive elements: a cosmic CSI case conducted by researchers from Stanford and Purdue universities.

LHC Lawsuit dismissed by US court: A Mr. Walter Wagner failed to show a “credible threat of harm”, and the US government does not control the operation of the LHC and therefore is not the correct party to bring action against. His claim was having "potential adverse consequences." He could have just as easily been describing jay walking.
