Atom Smasher – Franklin Institute

IMG_3421

These are the tracks left behind by a collision in a particle accelerator.  I am a bit of a science nerd (actually a lot of a science nerd) and I wish I could have stolen this and hung it up in my house….or I could just buy a particle accelerator and make my own (which would be AWESOME).

I love that this looks like an ethereal night sky. I love looking at the path of the atoms. I love how beautiful science can be.

Science is so cool.
