The Twelve Days of Christmas for Physicists:

The Twelve Days of Christmas for Physicists:

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me (etc.)

A glimpse of the Higgs Boson

Two spin dimensions

Three quark flavours

Four outer planets

Five years of funding!!

Six carbon protons

Seven new dimensions

Eight branes a-bumping

Nine telescopes tracking

Ten neutrinos speeding

Eleven strings vibrating

Twelve theorists thinking


  1. But how can you tell carbon protons from other protons? And while I'm here aren't there 6 flavours of quark? Sorry - I'll get my coat.

  2. Spoilsport. Anyway, there'd be 30 flavours of quark at the end of the 12 days!

    Taxi for Codec!
