These correspondences, like thousands of digital message-in-a-bottles, spanned multiple mediums and ranged from the playful to the poetic. But together, they formed Hadfield’s invitation to the public to join him in his fascination and love of science.
Imagine yourself at the age of 10. You're playing hide-and-seek with your friends and you end up hiding behind your mother's old jackets in a dark, mothball closet. You hear the seeker count down from 100 and when they reach the 'ready or not, here I come' part, you hold your breath.

The Large Hadron Collider at the European Centre for Nuclear Research broke a new barrier Tuesday. They snapped particles together at record speeds — 7 tera-electron volts(TeV) — bringing us one step closer to recreating the conditions at the time of the Big Bang.
The point of recreating the Big Bang is to produce massive particles that have never been observed before, says Kevin Graham, a physics professor at Carleton University.
One of the main particles they’re looking for, Graham says, ...
