OMG, The World Just Ended!!

Or all the nutjobs were just proven wrong. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva has successfully collided its beams for the first time at world record speeds. The LHC has had a lot of problems and the collision of the beams have been delayed numerous times, but finally it was successful!

Some of the questions Cern hopes the LHC will be able to answer is how the universe looked just a millisecond after the big bang, if there actually is a so called “God Particle”, and how many chucks could a wood chuck chuck? Some of life and science’s big questions. I for one am excited, and hopefully some real cool things will come out of this big ass donut.

Here is the press release from Cern:
