Im talkin cool links NOT associated with CERN..

Like

US/LHC blog.

http://www.uslhc.us/

Scientist from US Universities working on the LHC. They mainly work on the Experiments so don't answer too many questions on the collider it self.

Interactions

http://www.interactions.org/cms/

Particle Physics News and Resources


Quantum Diaries

http://www.quantumdiaries.org/

More blogging Physicists.

Perimeter Institute

http://www.perimeterinstitute.ca/

Pi was started by Mike Lazaridis of Blackberry fame. Lots of good video lectures here;

One more pops to mind.

This Spanish school teacher has a very cool LHC web page.

One of my all-time favorites (Garrett Lisi looking at particle physics without equations and still be able to find beautiful structures):

http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/garre ... thing.html

From the same website Brian Cox (if you want some cue's on Higgs and how particle physics relates to cosmology and understanding the evolution of the universe:

http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/brian ... lider.html

and of course also Brian Greene (on String Theory and extra dimensions and how the LHC might indicate the existence of extra dimension):

http://www.ted.com/talks/brian_greene_o ... heory.html

For the relation between dark matter and dark energy in the universe and particle physics:

Even better if you view the source, a few amusing things there.

Wow, a knight avatar...

I think the knights were very smart people, they invented the linear collider
and even made a lot of self-experimentation with it ;-)
