Actually I saw it on the "New scientist" site. I actually thought of sending it to b3ta, but thought it was too nerdy. (They didn't include the front cover of a nanotechnology journal that looked like a tiny goatse that I sent in)

This is awesome. There's some funny commentary on the New Scientist page too. "There are also a couple of very confused looking engineers in the background. Katherine forgot to bring her music system with her during the filming, and a lot of it was done in silence."

We enjoyed it a lot.

Topic changed, and following a recent /. post, adding this fantastic series of pictures as collected by "The Big Picture."

http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2008/08/the_large_hadron_collider.html

That's just awesome...and magnificent.

(I know some pictures have been released before, but this presentation just made it much easier to digest.)

This is the way the world ends.
Not with a bang, but with a rap song.

btw - this picture made me think "I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that"

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

So, how does one get a job there?

EDIT: Apparently, the rough draft had "how does when get a job there?" I don't know who when is, nor do I care how they would go about getting a job at CERN. What I really wanted to know is how I could get a job there. Please see corrected text above. Thank you.

1. Get a phd in high energy physics. Preferably a couple of years ago. Go there as a post doc. Or perhaps as a phd student. Or somehow otherwise, your local HEP institute will have ways of getting you there assuming you're working in that field.

2. Become a skilled programmer/sysadmin/janitor/cafeteria grunt and get noticed in the right places where cern folks move.

3. Go to http://cern.ch - then click on the "Jobs" link, check if you qualify for anything interesting, and if you do - apply. If you don't, gain qualifications, repeat.

YOu could try to get a job as a jonitor or someting, but you will probably have to learn french.

You won't be able to get a job as a tour guide. They get?make the lower scientists there to do this. This way when you ask a tehnical question on a tour, the tour guide can answer it.
