Second Coming

Was the re-enactment of the Big Bang in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN tonight really the Second Coming of Christ?

THAT is the question we should all be asking ourselves...

GENEVA -The world's largest particle collider successfully completed its first major test by firing a beam of protons all the way around a 17-mile (27-kilometer) tunnel Wednesday in what scientists hope is the next great step to understanding the makeup of the universe.
After a series of trial runs, two white dots flashed on a computer screen at 10:36 a.m. (0836 GMT) indicating that the protons had traveled the full length of the US$3.8 billion Large Hadron Collider.
"There it is," project leader Lyn Evans said when the beam completed its lap.


Even if it wasn't a Big Bang of Biblical proportions, the foreplay was a riot.

Legal bid to stop CERN atom smasher from 'destroying the world' - The world's biggest and most expensive scientific experiment has been hit by a last minute legal challenge, amid claims that the research could bring about the end of the world.

A bit of Black humour to end the day on - Black Holes are what you get in black socks.

I was waiting for the Earth to move, but...nothing. Very disappointing, story of my life, really.
