New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast on the LHC


One of our favorite symmetry covers is the one drawn by New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast for our May 07 issue -- "a family album of teensy-weentsy particles (some slightly less than real)," as she put it.  I'm especially fond of the slepton and the poserino.  She also illustrated our story on the search for dark energy. Well, she's at it again with a brochure of FAQs on the Large Hadron Collider.  It 's reprinted in today's iSGTW newsletter:

Q.  What would happen if I went inside it?

A.  Just. Don't.
