hear hear! And to think one could nicely explain - with no little detail - in under a dozen paragraphs something as abstruse as current particle physics to a lay audience (well i consider myself quite lay) is quite impressive indeed - well done!

Said it before, but I’ll say it again: I appreciate your “hard science” coverage on this website. Really enjoying hearing/learning about things in fields that I am ignorant of.
