Have a look at a semi-humourous slide from the Southern California Strings Seminar which I posted about here and here. UC Irvine's Jonathan Feng was talking about the search for dark matter, and the related collaborative efforts between collider physics, astrophysics, cosmology, and other areas of physics.


[Update: Full size picture of slide here, and slides of talk here (pdf) (ppt)*.] I like the idea that one day when we're all beings of light (or whatever) and can look back on this exciting area of physics in our history, we should all be able to buy this from Parker Brothers (say) as a board game. Fun for all the familiy! What do you think of it? -cvj (* Thanks for the extra links, Michael Gutperle!)
