Fermilab

We just watched The Atom Smashers on PBS, a documentary about the search for the Higgs boson at Fermilab. It reminded me of the time I spent in the computing division at Fermilab in high school, an experience that I remember very fondly and for which I'm still enormously grateful. It also reminded me once again how lucky I was to have been there when the top quark was found. That kind of excitement is a pretty rare thing.

Miscellaneous connections... As it happens, my friend Kate Simko scored the music for the film. And just as it ended, this post showed up in my RSS reader. Thank you IMSA indeed. And thanks, Jay, for bringing me to Fermilab in the first place.
