CERN Hadron Collider to Smashing UP Particles Again

The scientist at the CERN Hadron Collider expect to be creating situations similar to Mini Big Bangs again by 4/10/2010. The CERN Hadron Collider is the world's largest of its kind enabling scientists to manipulate matter at very high levels of energy and study them. The goal is to recreate conditions close to that of the Big Bang. By doing this the scientists hope to unlock the mysteries of the universe and find the theorized Higgs Boson (or the God Particle), which describes how particles have mass.

When the particle accelerator first started smashing "stuff" up, it was accelerating particles to an energy level of 2.36 Teraelectronvolts (TeV). The scientist want to now see what they can do by increasing the energy 7.0TeV.

Last time the CERN shut down was for technical reasons. Spokesman James Giles said: "It's too early to say precisely what happened, but it seems to be a faulty electrical connection between two magnets that stopped superconducting, melted and led to a mechanical failure and let the helium out."

Melting superconductors... Great! While the scientists are CERN indicate there is nothing to fear, speculation has long debated that the advanced atom smashing they are doing could equal trouble as we manipulate the basic elements of our universe. Advocacy groups have even been started to protest and legally stop the advances at CERN.

Irishman Ron Ambiguous, reported to have been abducted by Grey Aliens and told that the CERN Hadron Collider would produce two blackholes and end the world as we know it. Others have speculated that CERN could open up a Stargate as in Einstein's speculations which would allow interstellar travel (by us or extra terrestrials).

Whatever the case, I say FIRE IT UP! Higgs boson - Terrific. Black Hole that ends the world - Not cool but at least we all get to see what is next at the same time. Interstellar travel - Sign me up!
