End of the World
ALICE goes online Wednesday, I cannot explain in detail what it is, but the two links below will. Basically they have finished the 17 mile long circular track underground that will move a particle at 99.9999% of the speed of light, the closest we have ever gotten. Not only are we going to do this, but they decided to move a particle clockwise and another counterclockwise, this is an attempt to creat black matter or tiny black holes. I guess this is supposed to allow us to see how things started 1 billionth of a second after the big bang. According to foxnews there have been death threats to the scientist, trying to get this not to happen.
