The Race for Bosons
Competitor takes advantage of LHC's accident
Particle accelerator smackdown! Scientists working on Fermilab’s Tevatron have been talking some smack (in the politest of terms), saying they have a good shot at finding the elusive Higgs boson before the currently out-of-commission Large Hadron Collider does.
Also in today’s links: a map of emissions, why not to keep chimps as pets (besides the now-obvious), and more.
- Scientists have created a Google Earth map that shows CO2 emissions, broken down by the industry that produced them. Unfortunately, it currently shows data from 2002, but there are plans to add in newer data.
- I feel awful for the lady who was mauled by the chimp but, more than that, I’m baffled by the other woman who was keeping this 200-pound creature as a pet. Here are some reasons that shouldn’t have happened.
- It sounds like a Disney movie: the Sea Turtle Association of Japan is trying to come up with an artificial limb for a 150-pound loggerhead sea turtle.
