Fly on a Windshield

Tickled by this “high energy” physics story.

Apparently the potential of a particle hurtling round CERN’s LHC at its full power of several TeV’s (Tera 1,000,000,000,000. electron volts)

… is equivalent to the energy of …

… one whole mosquito in flight.

[Post Note : See ex-page-footer for the significance of the “fly on a windshield”.]
