Friday wrap-up: Chinese collider...

Not too much happening lately, or perhaps I have been keeping too busy with other things? Either way, we had a week away; so here's some news from the last two weeks.

Here's hoping they carry through with it! As well this week, Phase II (prototyping) of the HL-LHC project has begun.
  • Ending with some visual delights, here is François Moncarey’s projection mapping work which opened TEDxCERN:

  • A few days ago the Cassini spacecraft performed its deepest ever dive through the southern plumes of Saturn's moon Enceladus (and returned some incredible images).
