    2 days till the first scheduled circulating beam.

    YouTube - Large Hadron Rap


    This explains what it does, pretty much.

    The Large Hadron Collider successfully moves proton up the full length of the US$3.8 billion scientific wonder
    September 10th, 2008 - 5:55 pm ICT by David M N James -

    Large Hadron Collider After waiting for over 20 years to use the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) scientists will today at 5pm, celebrate their dream for it will come true. At 5pm the switch will be flicked on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a giant particle accelerator built by European science organization CER. This mysterious scientific inception was made purposely to study the smallest known building blocks of matter. However the LHC is the largest and most complex machine ever made. It is now the world’s largest particle collider. The big news is that, the large hadron collider has successfully completed its first major test by firing a beam of protons all the way around a 17-mile tunnel.

    The quest to understand and comprehensively perceive the context of the makeup of the universe has led to this scientific supremacy and it was made operational today.

    Latest news from the CER show that a series of trial runs led to two white dots flash on a computer screen at 10:36 a.m. (0836 GMT). This was indicative of that protons had moved all the way along the full length of the US$3.8 billion Large Hadron Collider.

    The scientists who have patiently researching and experimenting the complex wonder of scientific cynicism forced open Champagne corks and these corks popped in labs as far away as Chicago, where contributing scientists watched the proceedings by satellite. Physicists around the world now have much greater power than ever before to smash the components of atoms together in attempts to see how they are made.

    The Hadron Collider is the biggest physics experiment in history has stoked fears that the collision of protons could eventually imperil the Earth. Scientist point out that a byproduct of the collisions could be micro black holes, subatomic versions of collapsed stars whose gravity is powerful enough to suck in planets and other stars.

    The Collider will force the proton beam close to the speed of light, whizzing 11,000 times a second around the tunnel. This is a scientific wonder that has edged the Earth and scientists a little closer to worry and wonder.
    Emphasis mine.

    Well. The first high energy collisions are scheduled for October 21, 2008. But I am not sure what experiments will be run in between.

    A proton beam in the other direction?

    I wonder how long it takes to cool down.

    There should be a lot to learn from the Tribbles that fell out of the singularity.

    I get a Large Hadron just thinking about the possibilities.
    No offense.

    I just come to think of the first level of Half-Life where everything goes really, really wrong

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
