A couple of years ago a panic arose from the public about the experiments taking place at CERN, due to the amount of energy involved with the collisions. Lots of people thought that the LHC would generate a miniature black hole, consuming the Earth and all of us with it. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any black holes out of the collider, but we did find a nifty little particle.
A while ago Yanhao sent me this rather amusing drawing he found, in the hope that I might be able to understand it better than he did, seeing as I have had considerably more experience when it comes to the language that is Latin. Yes, I took Latin for A-level. No, that was not a joke. It’s not funny, stop laughing.
By going through what the image actually entails, I thought I’d be able to share with you today the joys of Latin. Perhaps you can go share it with your friends and wow them with your amazing knowledge of a few Latin phrases.
If you have hung around in a science-y place (like all cool kids do these days), you may have seen the following diagram.
