    that enough benefits can be drawn from both sides to state that, in a way, big and little science formally ‘need’ each other. Before that, we must analyze the essence of big science. The origin of big science certainly contains an amount of dark and daunting history. Based upon the two main sources of big science practice in the 20th century (that being two World Wars and the Cold War), a common misnomer conveniently states that all big science exists merely as the unobjective and evil willpower of bureaucratic governments who carry bottomless wallets. Some post-Cold War projects, however, clearly dispel this notion by way of international contribution and collaborative unity. The most budget-intensive example would be that of the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, funded by CERN who receives contribution from several European nations. CERNs active function as an organization is the 2 research and development of cleaner and safer forms of nuclear energy to use in the future. Coincidentally, CERN also became a major contributor to the development of the World Wide Web in its earliest stages. Computer scientist Robert Cailliau and Tim Berners-Lee first proposed the use of hypertext and its protocols, with CERN providing the necessary host servers. They envisioned that scientists all over the world could collectively contribute and gather information from these host servers. Certainly, the simple argument that big science itself contains unscientific goals cannot…

    to know. While this and other technological innovations affect us on a daily basis, science that does not have an immediate benefit in everyday lives is often seen as less important. In the movie, Particle Fever (2013), Mark Levinson delves into the world of science and the creation of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The United States government halted the production of a similar version of the LHC because they found no immediate benefits from this experiment. They deemed money to be spent on…

    What kind of knowledge do we gain from the arts? It has been highly bothering to determine to what is knowledge produced by the arts. How do we know it is knowledge. How do we differentiate between the knowledge provided by arts and natural science. Is knowledge of the arts intention of the artist, the artwork itself or the interpretations of the viewer? To a large extent knowledge of the art is subject to contextual analysis and remain subjective whereas natural science tends to be more…

    The debate over creation is one that has been around since the beginning of time. Some say God, some say science. But what about other intelligent life? Is it possible that they created our universe? While this notion may sound outlandish and completely irrational, there is actually quite a bit of logical evidence to back it up. All it would take to create a universe is a particle accelerator only slightly more powerful than the Large Hadron Collider. When the LHC was fired up in 2008, there…

    I found out about Particle Acceleration when I went to the United States Air Force Academy Summer Seminar in a class where we learned about propulsion. The topic covered was electrodynamics and it related to a particle accelerator. I have researched the particle accelerator online and watched videos over the CERN, largest particle accelerator in the world. I would like to further my studies in this topic so I can develop a large understanding of exactly how and why the particle accelerator is…

    Art and science have always been seen as completely separate and opposite studies. Art has always been seen as the display of pictures created by talented artists, while on the other hand, science has always been seen as experiments and research. In the documentary, Particle Fever, the movie brings attention to the different view of the arts and sciences as two interdependent subjects. The director, Dr. David Kaplan, uses the documentary to give his audience an inside view to the world’s largest…

    couldn’t use the scope after all.” Waiting for someone to smile, I asked, “What was the problem?” The next few hours are a complete blur; someone, some faceless person in the room, spoke up and explained that the surgeon started with a half-inch incision and scope, but he couldn’t find the afflicted appendix. Rather than taking the extra precaution and doing an MRI to find the appendix, he cut me open, giving me a seven-inch scar, and looked for it, well, manually. They not only discovered that…

    Numerous studies have been done on the causes and effects of Ulcerative Colitis in the body that ultimately begin and progress through the large intestine. These studies have led to information that allows physicians to help their patients control the symptoms of this disease and enable them to lead a normal life. However, through the research that has been done no significant information has led to the cure of this disease or what truly causes it in the first place. The cause for this disease…
