“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.”

Weak proton charge
A team at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator
Facility has measured the weak charge of the proton by
scattering a beam of spin-polarized electrons from stationary protons in a
liquid hydrogen target. The value is 0.0719 ± 0.0045.
