According to this week's New Scientist, the Large Hadron Collider will be commissioned on 10th September. This gives me the excuse to ask three questions that should be on the LHC FAQ:

  1. Why is it called a "large hadron collider" when hadrons are teeny-tiny little things?
  2. Is the instrument they use to look for collisions called a colliderscope?
  3. Given that CERN is the home of the WWW, how come its web pages are so ghastly to look at?
