The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was turned on earlier today and we are all still here.

At least for now anyway.  In the coming months, the collider is expected to begin smashing particles into each other by sending two beams of protons around the tunnel in opposite directions. There are some skeptics who claim that the smashing particles experiment could lead to the creation of a black hole capable of swallowing the entire planet.  Scientists believe that if a singularity, or black hole, were created that it would be too weak and unstable to do any damage before it would "dissolve."

I hope the scientists, and not the skeptics, are right about this one.  After these experiments, the world and the universe as we know them will never be the same.  Stay tuned and let’s hope that all of the scientific calculations are correct!
