Exam results

August 24th, 2011 by katielloyd

A level results week – and even though there are record levels of high grades the fight for places at University is harder than ever. The best news though is that Physics has become so popular – the ‘Cox effect’ they call it, as a result of the popularisation of science on TV. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the so-called ‘God particle’ also get mentioned in the press as reason for the popularity of science and particle physics in particular. Professor Peter Higgs whose name is attached to the God particle (or Higgs Boson) was a delightful subject for portrait photography recently. He had never come across an iPad and thoroughly enjoyed playing with mine. Can you tell what he is drawing, is it a Sombrero potential, a Boson or just a face?
