Real science and science fiction

Stuart over at Cumbrian Sky has been getting quite excited about Dr Who and his companions, even the Bad Astronomer has been getting in on the act. If like many of us you like a mixture of real science and science fiction you might like this video covering a recent visit of Dr Who / Torchwood's John Barrowman (Cpt Jack Harkness) to the CERN facility to look at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

As well as plenty of coverage of Captain Jack, there's also a fair amount about the experiment itself including some pretty impressive animations. There'll be a test on quark-gluon plasma at the next meeting !

P.S. First time I've tried embedding a YouTube video so here's hoping it works for you. If not try this link.
