Chinese Linear Collider

Dennis Overbye wrote an article in The New York Times about
The ILC could be Chinese, after all. The text also illuminates why Sheldon Glashow - who is celebrating his birthday today, congratulations! - couldn't accept string theory: he worked on science compatible with the Cultural Revolution - a model with a Leninist matryoshka onion structure of matter - and proposed a name for a new particle inside the electron called the Maon after Mao Zedong. ;-)

Thanks to Josh Lapan.
