All I Want For Christmas is a Miniaturized Particle Accelerator

Dear Santa,

See that line there on my Christmas list, where it says “Guitar Hero III”..? Well, um, if it’s not too late, just cross that out and replace it with “desktop synchrotron”.

Then again, perhaps I could build one myself, as it uses simply “a laser, some gas, and a row of magnets”. Looks like I’m heading to Radio Shack today.
