We're still here.
CERN's LHC was turned on this morning and despite all the usual ill-informed press coverage and Psuedo-scientific scaremongering coming out of the US....the world is still here. A BBC newsreader stated that the LHC would be firing Protons the size of a human hair!!!...That's one hell of a particle!! With reporting of this calibre, it's no wonder young kids were apparently going to school thinking the world was going to end at 8:30 this morning.
The one ray of hope from the awful mainstream TV coverage from the day, was a text sent by a young physics student who felt this event was his generations inspirational equivalent to the moon landings!!
Oh...this is something I took on the the way to the recycling tip.
