Science/Art, Art/Science

So, the Large Hadron Collider might kill us all, it might discover God, it might turn us all into grey matter, it may be the only thing capable of turning us into little bits of vaporized dust before the Russians get us.

But while it's temporarily busticated and the project is on hold, can we talk about how it's kind of beautiful? Note that there are people in every picture, which gives you an idea of the scale of this thing.

Pictures from the ever-wonderful National Geographic...photographers from top: Maxmilien Brice (CERN), Mark Theissen, Peter Ginter.

Oh, and, um...there's also this.
