Life in physics is often slightly more unusual than you expect. Usually this is because what we do is uncertain by definition, but not always. A personal case in point crops up next week when I go to have a look at cutting edge technology production facilities in... Hastings.
Okay being a city boy I'm biased but Hastings? Come on! That place has one and only one contribution to the world and we all know what that is. Yet this is from there that my current project will get its hitherto untested technology and, all being well, a new type of particle physics detector will be born.
I'm getting ahead of myself somewhat, of course. I first have to get to Hastings... So to that end I will be blogging experience of my cross country rail travel next Tuesday and Wednesday. This will mark my first use of London other than its airports for business. Wish me luck...
Oyster card is at the ready, let's go!
