Big Bangs... Big Bucks... Big Leaps?
"At 12:30 a.m. EDT Wednesday, scientists on the Franco-Swiss border will flip the switch on the Large Hadron Collider, a 17-mile underground ring where subatomic particles will be accelerated to astonishing speeds and then smashed into each other. It'll be months before any usable data comes out from the experiments, but the so-called "Big Bang machine" already has physicists salivating at the prospect of unlocking the mysteries of the universe..."
I think its interesting - some people are ever so excited because a fine team of scientists are working ever so hard around the clock (and have done so for quite some time), using their combined high intelligences and cutting edge skills to seek to replicate what they believe to be the BIG BANG in a controlled environment.. and, here's what we know.. if this thing works, many will no doubt point to it to try to prove that the Universe came about by a random act of "chance," without the need for any Intelligence behind it at all. :-)
