Published with the October issue of Physics World is a special big-science supplement where we take a good look at the specific challenges of designing and building humongous facilities such as ITER and the LHC –from how to get them funded to the engineering and scientific issues that have to be met before construction can begin. You can download a free copy of the PDF here.
So, our poll question for this week:
Do you think that “big science” facilities are value for money?
The options are “Yes”, “No” and “Depends on the project”.

Our second poll question asked “Has the 2011 Nobel Prize for Physics ‘for the discovery of the accelerating expansion of the universe’ gone to the right people?” Some 88 of you answered with a “Yes”, while only 7 of you said “No”. So, that wraps up our Nobel polls, until next year!
