Wow, It was not enough with a bunch of string theory… I attend just two weeks ago, the 4th CERN Latin American School on Particle Physics…
I spend a wonderful time learning about the other side of physics, experiments… and even phenomenology. That’s a lot of work.
I did not know the huge amount of energy, money and effort people should put to develop this particles accelerators, and forth to analyze the bunch of data. Moreover, after all that work you must find the correct (let’s hope) theory to explain the facts.
“Physics: Where the action is” as I think Feynman said.
Ah!!! Almost forget the best new. I was assigned to write the lecture notes of John Ellis on Cosmic Microwave Background. Such a nice experience.
