Fright Night is upon us, and it’s the perfect time to watch a horror film set in a particle collider. Decay is a movie made by physicists at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, a huge sister smasher to our Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven. Hit play, throw your hands over your eyes, and get ready for a science scare-fest like none other. 

Thankfully, unlike the CERN portrayed here, Brookhaven isn’t overrun with zombies. We can’t be sure about ghosts, though. The Lab has been around for several decades, and before that it was a training ground and hospital for soldiers in World War I and II. Our Tumblr team will keep our eyes out and let you know if we encounter anything spookier than quantum mechanics around here.
