Thought for the month

“You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young." "Why, what did she tell you?" "I don't know, I didn't listen.” From The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams, Author (1952-2001)

Ready for ET

Never mind elusive bosons what about hard to find extra-terrestrials? Last week saw people with an interest in the search for intelligent life beyond planet earth meet at SETICon2 in Santa Clara, USA. Like Higgs, ET was not observed, but the conference highlighted that we are now in a better position than ever before to find evidence of its existence. I like positive thinking, England football supporters have survived on it for years.
