The American artist Peter Halley has taken over 460m² of the Schirn Kunsthalle exhibition hall in Frankfurt, turning its huge rotunda into a futuristic exploration of architecture and space that's inspired in part by the LHC.

Video: The Large Hadron Collider is impressive for a great many reasons. But forget about all that cutting-edge science for a moment and instead marvel at the scale of the engineering behind the project.
Bad news, citizens of Earth: those evil physicists at CERN are once again hellbent on vaporising the Earth and ending the universe as we know it as the Large Hadron Collider ramps up to unprecedented energies. That's according to Lonnie Robinson, intrepid correspondent/prophet of doom for The Daily Reporter in Coldwater, Michigan, who sees the signs of our imminent destruction everywhere he looks (including The Simpsons). He even pegs the specific day on which we can probably expect global annihilation: September 24, 2015.
After restarting to run at higher power than ever, the Large Hadron Collider has made its first proper discovery. Today, a team of scientists announced that they have found a new class of sub-atomic particles known as pentaquarks.
After two years of upgrades, the world's largest particle accelerator is back and business. And it's already bashing subatomic particles together at higher energies than ever before to probe the most fundamental questions about the nature of the universe.
