Design Backstory

It is a truism that new instruments with new technologies presage new science. The LHC build gave us the Higgs boson though not (yet) the much anticipated WIMPS that might give us insight into the nature of dark matter even with higher power and luminosity.

As further enhancements to the LHC are made let us applaud the engineers (who outnumber the LHC physicists) that bring dreams to fruition as built structures. As just instance it is astounding the tolerances and strength that the equipment needs to be built to in order to both generate and control the incredibly powerful magnetic forces that keep the particle beams on track. Have a listen to an interesting BBC Discovery podcast on the further LHC enhancements and read CERN’s Michael Benedikt’s Researchgate article on building the next generation particle collider.

Made from 100% organic ring-spun cotton, this  is a high-quality, super comfy and eco-friendly unisex t-shirt

• Fabric weight: 5.3 oz/yd² (180 g/m²)
• Single jersey
• Medium fit
• Set-in sleeves
• 1 × 1 rib at collar
• Wide double-needle topstitch on the sleeves and bottom hems
• Self-fabric neck tape (inside, back of the neck)

The sizes correspond to a smaller size in the US market, so US customers should order a size up. Do please check the size charts before finalising your order, thanks.

This product is made especially for you as soon as you place an order, which is why it takes us a bit longer to deliver it to you. Making products on demand instead of in bulk helps reduce overproduction, so thank you for making thoughtful purchasing decisions!
