Queensland Museum (http://www.qm.qld.gov.au)

I went to the Queensland Museum on the South Bank today. This is their science and technology museum. I admit to being jaded; I grew up and lived in the New York City area, spent years traveling to Washington D.C., and have visited London and Paris. So I knew it would not compare in the awesome category. My expectations were met. It is a beautiful museum targeted at middle school students. I went, however, to see the exhibit on the large Hadron Collider. It was a major disappointment. There were lots of pieces of hardware but the video presentation was, imho, awful. Just building the LDC was a major engineering feat. Nothing, no pictures. No real explanation of how it works. Like, we shoot this beam and it gets squeezed by these magnets (picture.) Nope, just a bunch of talking heads in a conference room. Lots of superficial talk about the Higgs Boson. Not my thing.Fair winds and following seas 🙂
