The most high-profile physics subfield is high-energy and particle physics, where physicists try to break down atoms to find the smallest possible ingredients that make up everything — by literally ramming stuff together as fast as they can with particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest in Switzerland.
Why does this matter? Breaking things down is how we learned what goes on inside atoms, and how electrons work. That knowledge underpins all modern electronics as well as nuclear technology. Plus, almost every one of us has a particle accelerator at home: a microwave, or an old-style CRT TV — the kind used before LCD became mainstream.
We have many warning signals in our lives: fire alarms to warn us of smoke or fire, indicator lights in our cars that tell us something isn’t working right, alarm clocks that warn us if we’re sleeping too late for a scheduled event, kitchen timers that alert us to the time something has been on the stove or in the oven and may burn if we don’t take action, even a traffic signal has a yellow light warning us that the red light is about to flash.

Support for deputy who suffered a paralyzing stroke
When Yvonne Cress woke up with a headache and vision loss in one eye, the 35-year-old deputy sheriff and new mom wrote off her symptoms as a migraine.
Then her speech became slurred and she lost her balance.
Yvonne’s husband, Dan, rushed her to the hospital, where scans confirmed that she’d had a stroke. The blood clot was inoperable and couldn’t be treated with medication.
The stroke paralyzed the right side of Yvonne’s body.
“It turned things upside down overnight,” Dan said.
