The Golden one...
Today, September 10th, 2008,
a very ambitious experiment is being conducted near Geneva.
The ultimate aim is to recreate conditions that existed immediately after the Big Bang.
First of all, are we so sure there was a "Big Bang".
This is just a theory... that does make sense.
But I find it is a romantic one and what do i know... ;)
This is carried out in an underground centre near Geneva,
the scientists are carrying out some tests on a multi-million
euro machine called the Large Hadron Collider.
It is probably due to my lack of knowledge in science
but... i don't think this is a 100% good/safe thing so,
i will keep my enthusiasm a bit reserved although it is
quite an exciting news when we look at the supposedly
I don't really trust the side effects of this experiment and i am
afraid if something goes wrong...nothing will be able to stop
a process that will provoke an unforseen chain of reactions that
could be unstoppable and ultimately possibly disastrous.
C'est le plus important accélérateur de particules
au monde construit à ce jour,
dépassant en terme d'énergie le Tevatron aux États-Unis.
Assisterons-nous au phénomène subtile de la grenouille et du boeuf
entre l'europe et l'amérique? (le miens est plus gros que le tiens...)
But, a nano positive thing came out of this media announcement.
I went for a ride in my beautiful mountains and i discovered this
beautiful arch made to honour some of the pionneers of our land.
I thought it looked like a star gate and i was thrilled with discovering
this window that probably at night, frames the most beautiful scenery
on clear nights: the sky, its stars, the moon and everything in between.
I loved it and created this "stargate" gallery :) to also
honour my fascination for the stars in the sky at night and all of
the beautiful phenomenon we can appreciate by just sitting and watching.
That in itself is a blessing...
Thanks to one (of the many) breathtaking image
that Flying Dutchman had the generosity
to authorize me to use to enhance one of my own.
I invite you to visit his exquisite galleries.
He has an understanding of beauty above the clouds
that i have never seen before. He is a true artist.
