I had started an entry a day or two ago with my completed Bargello – Nebula quilt, but I think I will postpone that for something a lot more awesome. Instead, I’m going to brag a little bit about my brother.
Today I got a very excited text at about 4am my time (around noon for him) from him tell me “They found it!!” This is so amazing and exciting for all of us because he’s there, at CERN this summer and is actually getting to meet and chat with some amazing physicists, including the great Peter Higgs.
My brother’s work there is not directly connect with the Higgs boson. He is instead working on hardware for the upgrade coming next year for the detectors, but still! To be there where amazing stuff is happening! This is by far one of the coolest things to happen to anyone I know.
I’m pretty excited to have a physicist in the family! Way to be awesome!
