Just to remind everybody that life ain't always nice and pleasant - a lot of animals have been sacrificed at the altar of science (and politics and ego).

If I discovered a particle I would name it "Kelly And Who?", which would make sense to a few friends and family members only. But discoverer's privilege, right? :shock:

That's why we are given the right to name it :)
I just hope Kelly would be good with it, the name will be the name of the dust forever!

So would we be given the opportunity to learn why you chose that name?
I hope that you find one, it would be fun to hear this story!

Are dusters still being asked to name particles?

The image comes from the Facebook game Cafe World :mrgreen: .
