Tour CERN's Large Hadron Collider

360 Cities hosts 360 degree panoramas of landmarks around the world. (Turn on the 360 Cities layer in Google Earth for some great imagery). One of the neat panoramas that science teachers might like to view is of CERN's Large Hadron Collider. The panorama allows you to spin and zoom through the interior of CERN.

Thanks to Danny Nicholson for Tweeting the link.

And for a really fun overview of the CERN Large Hadron Collider watch this rap video made by an American scientist working on the CERN project.

A Close Look at the Large Hadron Collider

Last night 60 Minutes ran a story about the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The videos from that 60 Minutes segment are available on CNET TV. Embedded below is one of the videos from last night's show. You can view all of the videos on CNET TV.

Applications for Education
The 60 Minutes segment about the CERN Large Hadron Collider provides a good examination of the CERN program. From the science of the Large Hadron Collider to the philosophical questions the CERN program raises, there is useful content for science teachers to discuss with students.
