Astronomy with a large helping of physics and a pinch of the other sciences.

LEGO model of ATLAS, one of the LHC experiments at CERN. While the real detector contributed to the discovery of a particle consistent with the Higgs boson in 2012, this one was signed by Peter Higgs himself during a visit to the University of Manchester last week. It’s currently sitting in the foyer of the Physics Building here, and I couldn’t help but take a few photos. 

Edit: The model was made by Sascha Mehlhase, and assembled in Manchester by students of the university. You can find more information at his website here
