Over the last few weeks we’ve been spending a lot of time here at the University of Oslo putting together a Lego model of the ATLAS detector.

The ATLAS detector is one of the four main particle detectors sitting on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva. The ATLAS experiment was one of the two main experiments involved in the discovery of the Higgs particle in 2012. My research group at the University of Oslo contributed to the design and construction of parts of the inner sections of the ATLAS detector, and has been involved in the research following the start-up in 2009.

This is an interesting video with an interesting twist. It’s by one of the few good Christian preachers I suppose. At least he’s a one of the good guys on this issue. But I think it also goes to show how conservatives have always been holding back progress in every area of society, including human rights.
