Have you seen the pictures of the Large Hadron Collider to be switched on today? Wow. It just looks so sci-fi, doesn’t it.
I don’t think it’ll destroy the world, but it almost looks capable of it.
(It wasn’t invented by Osterhagen, was it? Oh, whoops — spoilers!)
PS. The kids are looking on the bright side: if by some freak chance it does create a black hole, destroying the Earth and the entire universe, at least they won’t have any more homework. We’ll be watching the webcast when it starts tonight.
PPS. As noted on AM this morning, although they’ll fire it up for testing for the first time today, collisions won’t be attempted for several weeks.
