Ponies, Panels, and Particle Physics · 2:53pm Feb 8th, 2020

Two bits of news:

I will be joining a panel on "Physical Laws of a Novel Dimension" organised by Needling Haystacks at HarmonyCon today. (Just by video link.) If anyone is in Dallas, come along at 11am.

The first particle physics themed story I have commissioned will be published soon. Stay tuned.

Pineta's Paying Pony Particle Physics Proposal · 10:39pm Oct 5th, 2019

Fancy writing a short story for 30$ per 1k and know your way around physics?
This has to be one of the coolest 'contests' so far.
Go have a look.
:yay: for science communication!

What the Hay is the Higgs Boson? · 11:38pm Feb 2nd, 2014

Many years ago, I was attending a science communication lecture, in which the lecturer threw a hypothetical challenge to the class: to write an article on the Higgs Boson for the Daily Sun, the notorious, best-selling British tabloid, known for snappy headlines, a lack of political correctness, and the dubious veracity of its articles.

Build Your Own Hadron Collider · 8:43pm Jun 21st, 2017

Apologies for not posting anything for a couple of weeks. I am sure you are all deeply missing my thrilling commentary on science and global politics. I have been rather tied up with science festival stuff for the last week. It’s amazing how much time organising even small events can take, but it’s always nice when young kids tell you that you're cool, and I got to play with some new science toys, including the LHC micro Lego model.

Daring Do and the Mysteries of Particle Physics · 7:14pm Feb 8th, 2020

GMBlackjack has now published a pony particle physics story I commissioned. Check out Daring Do and the Inexplicable Artifact. An A.K. Yearling adventure in which our pegasus hero discovers a mysterious object that appears to be shooting some sort of beam, but while it is evidently drawing a lot of power, it appears to have no effect whatsoever on anything in its path. Daring enlists the help of

T2K Neutrino Oscillations · 8:18am Jun 7th, 2017

Here’s an appropriately cute short description of the T2K particle physics experiment in Japan, which creates a beam of neutrinos at the accelerator complex at Tokai, and sends it 295km through the Earth to a detector at Kamioka, in order to study the weirdness of neutrino oscillations.

Stay Indoors. Take a trip to Geneva · 10:09pm Apr 9th, 2020

How are you all coping at the moment?

Here in England, I am stuck at home, allowed out once a day for exercise. It has been a confusing past few weeks. Things I had been planning for months were abruptly cancelled, and I then had to quickly make new plans. I am fortunate that I have a place to live and have a job. I have been trying to assist some others unfairly threatened with redundancy, which is rather stressful, much more for them than me.

New Season Update from the CERN particle physics laboratory · 10:50pm Apr 5th, 2015

“Isn't this exciting? Are you excited? 'Cause I'm excited. It's been such a long time we've had to wait for this, and now this weekend it's finally restarting after a long break and we can look forward to so much exciting new cool stuff. I've never been so excited, well, except for the time that I...”

Twilight and Pinkie visit Fermilab (Batavia, Illinois) · 5:47pm Oct 11th, 2014


Twilight Sparkle and Pinkie Pie lay on the grass in the middle of a field of reclaimed prairie on the site of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, together with a group of the resident buffalo with whom they had just made friends. In the distance they could see the distinctive shape of the high-rise laboratory building of Wilson Hall.
