On Physics Web today! December 6, 2006Posted by dorigo in Blogroll, games, internet, news, personal, physics, politics, science.
Martin Griffiths’ article on betting in physics is out at http://physicsweb.org/articles/world/19/12/7/1 , on the Physics Web internet site. He contacted me about a month ago to inquire about a US$1000 bet I placed on this site (see https://dorigo.wordpress.com/2006/09/04/this-1000-says-there-aint-new-physics-at-the-tev-scale/ and following posts) about no physics beyond the standard model being found at the LHC, and obtained some information he used in his article.
He did keep his promise – he linked my site in the article. Thank you, Martin… By reading the article, I also got to know several trivia I did not know (notably, the fact that Stephen Hawking is betting against the Tevatron finding the Higgs boson – we’ll see Stephen!). Go have a look!
