Newsletter 058 – Ramadan Competitions

Written by on September 18, 2008 in Newsletter


DISCOVER NANIMA COMPETITION CANCELLED The Discover Nanima competition has been cancelled because the prize is not available anymore. We are replacing it with a Madala Ramadan Competition. To remove any tears from your eyes if you are disappointed about the cancellation we found something better. Nanima is going to India at the end of the year and wished she could give someone a chance to go to India as well. Lucky for her she found a competition that does just that? Who knows we might bump into the winners during our tour of the gaam.

Large Hadron Collider Went Online

The LHC is the latest and most powerful in a series of particle accelerators that, over the last 70 years, have allowed us to penetrate deeper and deeper into the heart of matter and further and further back in time. The next steps in the journey will bring new knowledge about the beginning of our Universe and how it works, as the LHC recreates, on a microscale, conditions that existed billionths of a second after the birth of our Universe.
