Wow, we are getting about 10 or so emails and comments a day about the LHC - most leading up to last night was how the world was going to end, and now they're starting up again on how the world is going to end again in a month or so.

I was a comic book fan way before I was a mom. I've always liked exposing my kids at an early age to simple forms of complex ideas; I think it makes concepts familiar, letting kids get comfortable with sometimes difficult topics before they're presented with the adult, "serious" versions - comics are the perfect medium for that! (Anyone remember the old Classics Illustrated comics?) Don't worry that kids might be too young for these books - I've noticed my kids read them before they were really ready to understand everything they read, then came back to them when they were older and got more out of them.

V. A. L Versatile Antenna Launcher is a cannon I made for a school assignment. I was required to build a cannon that could shoot a pocket nerf with a fishing line attached over a tree.

We had a commenter that was really upset about the Large Hadron Collider (or as I like to call it, the biggest refrigerator ever made). I also received a few emails, with the same concerns.

In November of 2000, John Pultorak got to thinking about building a replica of a 60's or 70's era digital computer from scratch. By 2001, he started placing orders for technical documentation and had chosen his target machine, a Block I Apollo Guidance Computer.
