CERN

Three decades after it was conceived, the world’s most powerful physics experiment at CERN is ready to be powered up.

Engineers will attempt to circulate a beam of particles around the 27km-long underground tunnel which houses the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The £5bn machine is designed to smash particles together with cataclysmic force, revealing signs of new physics in the wreckage. This will re-create conditions in the Universe moments after the Big Bang.

Critics are worried that mini-black holes made at the soon-to-open facility on the French-Swiss border might threaten the Earth’s very existence. So if your sitting at your desk this morning and you feel a strong pull to your left or start floating out of your chair, you can assume that something has gone drastically wrong!

Thinking for a Living

Thinking for a Living was developed for a breakout session, taking by Duane King (Creative Director, BBDK Inc.), that took place at the Dallas Society of Visual Communication Student Show. It reinforces the notion the while design is a profession, but above all its a passion. Their ethos is “Great design is art, not a commodity or a formula”. Not sure about you but I’m totally sucked in.
