The Higgs Boson Anthology: Yours to Keep and Share
All this week, some amazing writers have come together to bring you the Higgs Boson Anthology, a series of pieces dedicated to and inspired by the search for the elusive particle.
The project was the brainchild of Marcella O’Connor, our resident physicist, after Daisy originally posted her Protracted Series of Mildly Humiliating Events that Lead to the End of the World. The idea coalesced after comments by PD and others, and the beautiful response to Daisy’s piece, posted again here, by Marc Horne, and then Marcella whipped our butts and those of writers everywhere, and this is the result.
Now, Marcella has turned the collection into a bookbuzzr, which means you can read it on screen in this wonderful book-like format at any time you want, simply by clicking the widget. And once you’ve done that, all you need to do is click “share” and you can make it magically appear on your blog or your Facebook or in your e-mail signatures (you can create a bookbuzzr widget for your own worsk as well).
The pdf is available to download here for free, so have a browse, and a read, and see what happens when art and science collide – and don’t forget to introduce it to all the scientists you know :
Scientists are the front line in the struggle to explain our world, but scientific knowledge belongs to everyone. It is the job of the artist to find a home in the collective conscious for new information.
