The End is Near...

Though this has nothing to do with what I've been writing on my blog, I thought I'd share it anyway.
This is the best article I've seen on the new super collider in Switzerland. Starting tomorrow, international scientists will begin speeding subatomic particles to eventual lightspeed, smash 'em together and create a mini big bang. All this is an attempt to understand the origins of everything. It's pretty exciting, but this is also the first article I've read that plays down the fact that no one really knows what the effects will be. Many theorize the little bang will create a bunch of tiny black holes and swallow up the earth and are trying to sue CERN into stopping until more research can be done. I guess we'll see.
