We hear that Engineers have begun a major upgrade
of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It should double the energy of what is already the most powerful particle accelerator in the world, and we are told, it will lead us to new ways of thinking about how the universe, life and everything works.
I have always been a Ptolomy fan with his circles, with a side-long love for Kepler and Copernicus, the modernists. Its a matter of taste for me how I view the universe so the Large Hadron Collider leaves me stone cold. Anyway. Below is an illustration of how the collider is to be improved. Its a matter of an extra pipe as far as I can see.
Now imagine that. An extra pipe is going to reveal how the Universe really works.
