Man Creates ATLAS Detector From Lego Bricks

hierophanta Re:Currently at Lawrence Berkeley National Laborat (54 comments)

that is a replica

In October 2012, LBL had its Open House on the 12th. It would be a great exhibit to attract kids and adults alike and so I volunteered to build a copy of the ATLAS Lego Model for the Open House. The original Lego model was designed by Sascha Mehlhase and he maintains a website with information and a construction manual here.

Samsung Testing 5G Phones With 1gbps Download Speed

hierophanta Re:Spectrum? (128 comments)

binary is preferable because of error correction. anything higher is significantly more susceptible to lost packets (exponentially by number of possible states).

(and anything lower is error proof)

Box With Hidden Camera Travels Through the Mail

hierophanta Re:MOD ME DOWN!!! (136 comments)

If ya dont like this site, or if it isnt meeting your needs what the hell is keep you here?

the fact that /. posts news that might be 2 days old is EXPECTED. that is what a new aggregation site DOES. its not like OP is complaining about months old stories (although that happens here too). what OP wrote is a step down from, 'i just read this in a journal, you guys are so out dated. look at me, i was cool before cool was cool. '
