The Large Hadron Collider Needs YOU!

The brainboxes at CERN have created a programme to help simulate photon beams that you can install on your own computer. This works like projects such as Seti@home, where a programme on your computer analyses 350kB chunks of data while your screensaver is on – sparing the supercomputers for the heavy stuff.

If you’re interested, go here for instructions on how to get started. I’m going to create a piece of artwork to add to this later.

UPDATE: Here you go.
