I think, for comics (or science fiction in general), you need to know enough about science to spark an idea, but not so much that it subsumes that spark.Here’s some things rattling round my brain right now: 1) The theory that the Biggs-Hosun particle is attempting to cover up its own existence by preventing the Large Hadron Collider from starting up.
2) The theory that the Large Hadron Collider will create a black hole and end the universe. 3) The Tegmark ‘Quantum Suicide’ experiment – http://www.higgo.com/quantum/qti.htm Maybe the large Hadron collider is, in effect, a giant ‘quantum gun’ that, everytime it starts IS destroying the universe, or at least one of the many universes – but for us it appears that it isn’t working. Seriously, a baguette stopped it? That’s insane.
