It's becoming clear that the LHC, even with the setbacks of two weeks ago, is starting to gain a lot of mindshare in the media. To keep up with the one-article-per-week-it-seems, NPR's David Kestenbaum (a former physicist himself) has reported a piece from CERN. rapping with Alvaro de Rujula (who I heard give a great set of lectures on gamma ray bursts in Erice a few years back). While I'm not a big fan of the "nothing is interesting" (i.e. finding no Higgs might be more important than finding one) scenario, de Rujula clearly feels no need to hold back. Have a listen!
