Hi from a Newbie!!

Post by BongoBern » Mon Apr 19, 2010 4:40 pm

WOW! This site is exactly what I've been looking for. I'm a 60 year-old armchair physics nut, and have been doing handsprings over the LHC since it started up. I browsed around and found the online displays (it was so cool to watch it ramp up this morning (eastern time US) to 3.5 TeV,) and watched those with a second window open to try to find acronym definitions, and what was going on. This site is wonderful and involves a lot of work - thank you! I'll be coming and going frequently, especially as I learn how to use it. It's very satisfying to see so much interest!
