This 2-Year-Old Kid Knows More About Space Than You Do

The winner of the contest was this very good video overview of the Large Hadron Collider:

Excellent production values! It won its creator, Luke, a trip to New York to celebrate the Rose Center's 10th anniversary. That's OK though, New York is a little too terrestrial for the runner up's tastes anyway. [AMNH]
