It's been called an Alice in Wonderland investigation into the makeup of the universe — or dangerous tampering with nature that could spell doomsday.

Whatever the case, the most powerful atom-smasher ever built comes online Wednesday, eagerly anticipated by scientists worldwide who have awaited this moment for two decades.

The multibillion-dollar Large Hadron Collider will explore the tiniest particles and come ever closer to re-enacting the big bang, the theory that a colossal explosion created the universe.

It comes online Wednesday, does that mean they will try it out then or another day? Let me know when they plan to use it so I can mark it on my day planner, I want to make sure I don't miss the end of the world.

jgoins: you have some time yet, they will only be doing small tests for awhile yet. At least several months before they make the blackhole that swallows our solar system. winking

we are likely to piss off some space aliens with this thing and then we can go G'hawd on them.......

it would be funny if some aliens arrived the week before and started hopping up and down saying "don't do it!"

There is no "God particle" to it. And the black hole spawn energy is different. It is not a tool of Satan...directly.

But inasmuch as millions of people are starving or suffering from preventable or curable ailments; this is proof of something not very nice.

I wonder what increased values of ignorance will ask/demand for more funding in the name of ignorance, sorry, Satan, before the scope of the current special-human genome is absorbed by the Norse-strain.

AND, it can't achieve the structure of a black hole or any such...there is such a thing as too many cooks. It will teach us stuff, but not enough to balance the cost.

No, the universe doesn't end for another 3 years.

All lessons in understanding more about ourselves and our world come at a cost, and ... usually, the more the cost, the more we tend to learn, or at least should expect to learn.

Odd how the norse race was mentioned here as mass detractors in our world, most especially so when 1 race on the planet makes up 1/2 of the total population and it's not the white one tongue

I'm all for it. Collide them Hadrons!

Don't you pay attention?

The Mayan Calendar and the PNAC funded Cray Supercomputer have both pegged the date as December, 18th, 2012. Or maybe it was 20th Century Fox. They're both one big happy megacorporation now.....

I'm as confused as jgoins now. Does this mean that all the minorities are going to get sucked into a supermassive black hole? Will I have to find a new gardener?

The clock is ticking.

At 3:30 a.m. EDT Wednesday, scientists on the Franco-Swiss border will flip the switch on the Large Hadron Collider, a 17-mile underground ring where subatomic particles will be accelerated to astonishing speeds and then smashed into each other.

It'll be months before any usable data comes out from the experiments, but the so-called "Big Bang machine" already has physicists salivating at the prospect of unlocking the mysteries of the universe — and many other people worried it'll create a black hole or strange self-replicating particle that will gobble up the Earth.

They said the same thing before the first atomic bomb test.

Everyone thought the atmosphere was going to burn up and take the earth with it.

I agree with Dude, they have built these Colliders for a while and they only get bigger and add more zeroes to the cost, 3,800 Millions on this one that could have done more for Humanity, and regarding the Big Bang theory, it is only that and no one has ever been able to prove it or will (dumb theory if you ask me) ........drinking

Money is wasted all around the world, it is just status quo. If somone comes up with a stupid idea and he can find funding for it then it will proceed. There is nothing we can do to stop insane people from throwing money away.
