Higgs Meets Beethoven
One reason I never have to, or want to, go to any of the cartoon movies from Hollywood (the majority now?) or fantasy TV series is real-life docs such as the new "Particle Fever," on the atom smashing and discovery of Boson Higgs and the secrets of the universe, with super-hero physicists to match any of laughable ones from Tinsel Town. And what was the only music they could use at the climax of greatest experiment of our time? Naturally, Beethoven's Ninth.
