Art and Sub-Atomic Particles Collide at European Organization for 
Nuclear Research

"GENEVA (REUTERS).- CERN, focus of research into the Big Bang and 
what makes the universe tick, on Thursday announced a new program -- 
fusing science with art to encourage painting and music inspired by 
the wonders of the cosmos.

"Or more prosaically a "policy of engaging with the arts" that will 
involve giving the European nuclear research centre's seal of 
approval for cultural projects influenced by the particle physics at 
the heart of its work.

""The arts and science are inextricably linked; both are ways of 
exploring our existence, what it is to be human and what is our place 
in the universe," said CERN director general Rolf Heuer, a German 
physicist and classical music fan."
