KNNB Apache Radio

By admin - Last updated: Thursday, November 24, 2011

In early 1990 we visited our friends who were doctors at the White Mountain Apache Indian Reservation. Among other things we visited the reservation radio station, KNNB.

I bought this T-shirt then.

CERN

CERN is the European nuclear experimentation lab, home of accelerators to explore particle physics. It’s main mission right now seems to be the search for the elusive Higgs Boson, but it received much publicity recently after an experiment that seemed to show that neutrinos break Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and the whole structure of modern physics, by moving faster than light.

The facility also featured in the Dan Brown novel and movie “Angels and Demons” with the totally fabricated story that they could create enough anti-matter, which remained in existence long enough, to make a bomb. Both suggestions were completely wrong by many orders of magnitude.

Each senior at our kids’ high school got to go on a class trip abroad, roughly related to what what they were studying. Our youngest son was studying Physics, and his group got to visit CERN.  He bought this for me in their giftshop.
