A scientist writes on the supercollider

I just came across this. I found it amazing that the WSJ would publish the rational opinion of a scientist! Maybe I just don't read it much, with their on-again off-again attitude to the web.

I wonder how the Palin-ites react to all this 'creation of the universe' science? They must think it just a perverse joke of the Big Guy, to keep all those useless academics amused. Certainly, they don't want any of that shit in the USA!

It's the " Year 2000 will cause world
catastrophe via computer glitch" hype all over again.

Media outlets and their reporters thrive on sensationalizing mundane facts. The fact that the worlds most complex scientific instrument is coming on line is not "sexy" enough unless it might just destroy the earth.

Bee (Theoretical physicist lady at the Perimiter Institute) at Backreaction Blog is quite weary of all the hype.
