I still use "nerd" as a playful insult, guess that makes me a square:

This is the Most Detailed Map of the Universe to Date

Postby Joel » Wed Mar 15, 2017 12:08 pm

This map of the universe spans more than 500 million light-years and contains more than 100,000 galaxies.
Superclusters – regions of space that are densely packed with galaxies – are the biggest structures in the Universe. But scientists have struggled to define exactly where one supercluster ends and another begins. Now, a team based in Hawaii has come up with a new technique that maps the Universe according to the flow of galaxies across space. Redrawing the boundaries of the cosmic map, they redefine our home supercluster and name it Laniakea, which means ‘immeasurable heaven’ in Hawaiian.

These would be nice for a survival kit. A little expensive at $30 for just ten. I wonder if you could make them somehow at home....

Primitive technology added description to their videos. To tell you the truth, I preferred them without but I understand why he did it. Still my favorite YouTube channel though.

There are over 30,000 particle accelerators all over the world, so what are they used for? Hint: It's not just particle physics.

The accelerator in the Louvre
http://www.symmetrymagazine.org/article ... the-louvre
In a basement 15 meters below the towering glass pyramid of the Louvre Museum in Paris sits a piece of work the curators have no plans to display: the museum's particle accelerator. This isn't a Dan Brown novel. The Accélérateur Grand Louvre d'analyse élémentaire is real and has been a part of the museum since 1988.

The Large Hadron Collider
https://home.cern/topics/large-hadron-collider
"The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator. It first started up on 10 September 2008, and remains the latest addition to CERN's accelerator complex. The LHC consists of a 27-kilometre ring of superconducting magnets with a number of accelerating structures to boost the energy of the particles along the way."

'Big Bang' experiment starts well
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/sci/tech/7604293.stm
"Scientists have hailed a successful switch-on for an enormous experiment which will recreate the conditions a few moments after the Big Bang. They have now fired two beams of particles called protons around the 27km-long tunnel which houses the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)."
