An Engineer in Wonderland – Big Science
I admire the search of knowledge for the sake of knowledge.
And I particularly admire it when lots of engineers get paid to design interesting and challenging stuff to support the science.
Which is why I was particularly impressed when a friend drew my attention to some pictures from the Large Hadron Collider under the boarders of Switzerland and France.
Wow – to the scale of the thing, and the courage of the vision that made it possible.
