Thanks to computing technology you don’t need to be a genius physicist to contribute to helping discover the secrets of the universe. Perhaps find a new, clean, renewable energy source? Faster-than-light travel?
Maybe you’ve heard of CERN? To quote their website:
“What is the Universe made of? How did it start? Physicists at CERN are seeking answers, using some of the world’s most powerful particle accelerators.”
I would encourage anyone to consider helping them out. If you’re not using your computer, why not let it help calculate the answers. Just download and install this bit of software and donate computer ‘idle time’ to a great cause. For more info, see the website http://lhcathome.web.cern.ch/join-us
