Banners, particles & Bubble chambers

Finally got a new `theme’ sorted for my WordPress blog `quantumPhoenix’ – This theme has flexibility for background pic and banner…and here it is – a backdrop of `Stars’ that I created (from scratch), and the newly created `quantum phenix’ banner.. Just what I had always wanted it to look.. :-)

It’s go the Phoenix bit (created from photos of a bonfire in garden), a cosmic `magic wand’ (that has stars, earth, Sun and moon) and of course the Quantum / atom bits..

Particles & Bubble chambers:

The spiral/lines are what comes up in  bubble chambers in particle detection systems – bit old – and the tracks are where high pressured `steam’ condenses sub-atomic particles pass through them (and a magnetic field). Some particles – charged curve this way or that.. some that have no charge go straight…so we get straight lines.. :-)    Actually this is a subject so close to my heart (particle physics , quarks, quantum, Higgs boson etc) that I’ll be writing on that in another post – when I have the time to enjoy writing it.

DrWho language of squiggle

My one annoyance on this matter is – ever since the `new DrWHO’ came back, they have been `using’ these symbols as the `language’ of planet Gallifrey. While it’s possible that such symbols can be used as a created language, I think if you are in a hurry, you’d write quick squigles…not complex particle decay patterns to express your thoughts, especially if Daleks etc are chasing you..right?   Hmm.  Ok, there ya go, I’ve got it out of my system.
