Sounds interesting!

Actually, 3 * 18 = 54 so I am 2 years short of that. :-) 

But "at the speed I'm going"  there will be "no escaping"  old age (eventually).

Going to the CERN LHC would be awesome.

You'll get to visit CERN, which is extremely cool. Almost from the beginning, they made public outreach part of their mission, and it shows.

You won't get to see the LHC or the LHC detectors, though; those are all about 80 meters below ground, and pretty much off limits except to engineers and techs working on them. Not even the physicists go down there, except for very specific reasons.

Seems to be, hands down, the best of the four experiences, at least in my opinion.

Google in Zurich would probably be second.

Could you add the GSF logo to the forum topic? This deserves to be featured, but we don't feature forum topics without pictures.
