I listened today to Shostakovich's 4th Symphony, it's wonderful! His works were banned from all public performance during the Stalinist terror when it was written. It sat in a drawer for a long time, and at last in the 1950s it was played to great acclaim. I recommend it to all who appreciate great music.
They found the "God-Particle."

That was the headline in many of America's news media. It turns out that the name actually derives from substituting "God-particle" for "goddamn particle," the original name some scientists had given the elusive particle. But the media adopted the former nomenclature.


Because otherwise, the bulk of humanity would not pay attention. Physicists went nuts. And no one can blame them. For decades, they have searched for the particle that may explain why there is any mass in the universe. And ten billion dollars were spent on the machine that probably proved its existence.

It is therefore not meant in...
