LHC’s New Name

The Large Hadron Collider just got renamed. Now it is called the Black Mesa. In case you didn’t know, Black Mesa is the setting of the game Half Life, which is basically a shooter taking place in a laboratory whose experiments went horribly wrong (horribly is an understatement). It is somewhat ironic, since people think this experiment will end the world, and a part of it has malfunctioned. Anyways, isn’t this cool? Video game culture is intermingling with culture in science. ^_^
