Hello everyone and today I thought I'd bring a little science to you. As you may or may not know the Hadron Collider, which is a particle accelerator, was fired off sucessfully yesterday in Switzerland. This 9 billion dollar project is meant to smash atoms together by shooting beams of particles (protons) down a tunnel located underground between the borders of France and Switzerland, to simulate the conditions of the Big Bang, a millionith of a second after it started, which was the catalyst for the creation of this universe. Now, for the skeptics, this is a scary concept, they feel we're playing with stuff out of mankind's hands and theorize that by firing off this canon, we will evidently create a black hole right here on our planet, thus destroying ourselves. Although, for the scientists this is a huge achievement, and they do not seem concerned by black holes.
