The Raspberry Award for this week goes to......?

I was watching a pro gramme last night on NG(National Geographic)and they are building the biggest machine ever.At a cost of billions of dollars(bloody waste of money if you ask me) its underground and borders on the Swiss and French side,27kms in circumference.

Its called a Particle Accelerator,with 8 large s magnets,that weigh 3 jumbo jets plus 1800 super magnets.To create the "Big Bang Theory"so they can discover sub ATOMIC PARTICLES.Now if anything goes wrong,they can't go down and inspect it because of the radio actives particles that could remain there for months.This thing runs on electric ty, to power a small city,I mean what the hell for????

Is this what our future is going to be?Are we destroying ourselves?Aren't we doing a fine job of it already!

To all physicists out there, and the wackos building this super size Shit of a Machine THE RASPBERRY AWARD GOES OUT TO YOU.

Due for completion by June 2007

Ah, you Tassie devil of a woman....all bigger toys for the little boys, but let's wait and see, I am not a physicist, but I have a chemical background, and you never know, some good could actually come of it...

Thank you for your lovely sweet comment on my blog. It made me smile and I really appreciate it.

So I feel a bit bad now making a plug for the particle accelerator.

I've been to the assembly point for this giant machine and seen it put together. It is truly awesome. Investigating matter, the stuff we are all made of, needs such instruments. The smaller the object the bigger the microscope you need to look at it, and these objects are infinitesimally small.

The knowledge of quantum physics, without which your computer would not be capable of all the things it can do, depends on fundamental science and I see this research as being as important as exploring space in understanding who we are and where we fit in to this universe of ours.

The world spends so much more on military hardware, and a relatively small proportion of our wealth should go into such ventures that stretch the ability of our most gifted men and women and create a true sense of wonder about this amazing existence of ours.

It is also a truly international effort, and projects that pull us all closer together on this world are always to the benefit of all humanity.

Oh, I'm not a physicist! And I'm not impressed by big toys!

You know why I wrote this Warm? It was a rant of sorts, and I appreciate all the views given here,but what about the future,for our children if they ever grow up to be adults.What of their future and their children's children.

With the money they spend ,sending man into space,the cost of wars...why don't they spend that money on the living,for poorer countries that aren't well off.

It makes me appreciate where I live and I am glad.
Thank you for your comments
