Quantumaniac is where it’s at - and by ‘it’ I mean awesome.

Over here I post a ton of physics / math / general interesting posts in an attempt to make your brain feel good. My aim is to be as informative as possible, all while posting fascinating things that hopefully enlighten us both a little to the mysteries of our truly wondrous universe(s?). Plus, how would you know if the blog exists or not unless you observe it? Boom, just pulled the Schrödinger’s cat card. Now you have to check it out - trust me, it said so in an equation somewhere.

LHC Lego Model

Sascha Mehlhase, a physicist at Denmark’s Niels Bohr Institute, has created a scale replica of the ATLAS particle detector from Legos. It took Mehlhase 35 hours to construct the model. The model of the detector required 9,500 Lego bricks. The Large Hadron Collider recreation even includes a tiny Lego engineer that wonders the tunnels of the Atlas detector’s huge magnets. The piece, in total, cost $2,600.
