Chris Morris collides with some hadrons
Posted by Martin Poulter on 14 May 2008
Two of my favourite topics are British satire and fundamental physics. In a surreal move, physicist Brian Cox has brought them both together by giving Chris Morris (of The Day Today, Blue Jam and Brass Eye fame) a tour of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, and interviewing him for the CERN podcast. Familiar faces from the world of comedy and popular science (including Simon Munnery AKA the League Against Tedium) are shown around in other episodes. “Pics or it didn’t happen”? There’s even a Flickr stream.
