Emma Stone Re-Enacts Star Wars
Congratulations on your face.
Gizmodo’s photo illustration for their story on scientists at CERN expecting to see “the first glimpse” next week of the elusive Higgs Boson — once described by National Geographic as a particle that interacts with all other particles “sort of the way a Jedi knight in Star Wars is the carrier of the Force” — is BRILLIANT.
Pardon me while I love the shit out of this.

New laser will tear the fabric of space.
Plans are underway in Europe to build a new laser which would be the most powerful in the world. The laser will be 200 times more powerful than the current top lasers, and would be equivalent to the power received by the Earth from the sun focused onto a speck smaller than a tip of a pin.
Contrary to popular belief, a vacuum is not devoid of material but in fact fizzles with tiny mysterious particles that pop in and out of existence, but at speeds so fast that no one has been able to prove they exist.
The Extreme Light Infrastructure Ultra-High Field Facility would produce a laser so intense that scientists say it would allow them to reveal these particles for the first time by pulling this vacuum “fabric” apart.
They also believe it could even allow them to prove whether extra-dimensions exist.
The £1 billion project is due to be completed by the end of this decade.
