Large Hadron Collider Explination

This is pretty weird (and cool) stuff. This video explains the operation of the LHC, it's power, and the forces at work required to "peer into what created and governs our universe."
The first live test of the LHC was today (Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2008) and apparently it's working properly. Otherwise, you wouldn't be here to read this article.

Speculations leading up to this event have been of "the end of the world" as the machine is said to be capable of creating "mini black holes" powerful enough to engulf the earth itself, or even our own solar system given the amount of matter available to grow the black hole.

Further testing and, ultimately, the actual full-speed, full-power shots will take place in the near future.

Hope to be here for the next post!
Fingers crossed...
