For those who would like to see more of the experiment that I am involved in, we have our own on-line newspaper "CMS Times" which you can access (and many other wonderful things particle) from here http://cms.cern.ch/ We do indeed have an absolutely enormous magnet to play with!

I also remember the "Physics is Fun" book that Cornflower talks about, but clearly I got more turned on by electrons and neutrons than she did.

I love the Auden poem. When the night mail trains stopped a few years ago Radio 4 commissioned someone (Simon Armitage I think) to do a poem in a similar vein. I remember little about it except tha I enjoyed it. I have looked in vain for a recording of this modern version since. If anyone else remembers which poet it was, and what the title was I would be really grateful!

This post reminds me of MC Lars' Mr Raven, a rap take on Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven. "All up in my grill like nevermore" being one of the more memorable lines, I'm not sure whether Poe would have been pleased or horrified or both :).

At PSD8 conference (Glasgow) we are at this very moment watching the LHC rap in the lecture theatre. Happily the audience is NOT joining in.

Only 6 days to go before circulating beam in the LHC!
