Try the Particle Clicker, and you’ll be a particle physicist for a while. I already have a very productive team working tirelessly. Also, the source code of this game is freely available on GitHub under the terms of an MIT license.
An addictive incremental game that teaches players the history of high energy particle physics.
Developed during the 2014 CERN Webfest over a weekend.
Visit http://cern.ch/particle-clicker to play the game.
Robin Wright on the Kurds’ bid for nationhood: http://nyr.kr/1jD8ZUS
