A large WHAT?

June 2, 2010

Missing piece found in particle puzzle: scientists

SCIENCE/CERNThe search for concrete evidence of dark matter and of what it might be is part of the work of CERN’s LHC, or Large Hardon Collider, the world’s biggest scientific machine that began operation near full force at the end of March.

Your definition of CERN’s LHC as the Large Hardon Collider is a bit provocative, don’t you think? Or, did you mean the Large HADRON Collider?

The title of the article also is interesting. Were they missing scientists? Where ARE the proofreaders when you knead them?


I believe you have an unfortunate typo. What’s a Large Hardon Collider”?


Unfortunate is one word for it. We corrected it: GBU Editor
