NEW NERD LEVEL UNLOCKED: CERN Uses LEGOs in Experiments [Pics]

On a trip to CERN, David Gabriel Marks snapped these photos of physicist-artist(!) Michael Hoch with the Large Hadron Collider made from LEGOs.

On a totally new level of nerdery, scientists at CERN use LEGOs for logistics purposes, using them to create miniature models of experiments.

Mind = blown.

  1. No no no! Please no. It is not "LEGOs" or even "Legos". It's Lego or LEGO. Singular. At one time the LEGO web site had this on it:

    "Please always refer to our products as “LEGO bricks or toys” and not “LEGOS.” By doing so, you will be helping to protect and preserve a brand of which we are very proud, and that stands for quality the world over”"
