Large Hadron Collider Set for Go!

Officials at CERN, the European Center for Nuclear Research, outside Geneva, announced Thursday that their new particle accelerator, the world’s largest, would begin operation on Sept. 10. On that date, the physicists and engineers will make the first attempt to circulate a beam of protons around a 17-mile-long super-cooled underground racetrack known as the Large Hadron Collider.

Geneva (Switzerland) – The Large Hadron Collider is just a few days from being switched on, but the scientists in charge of the 17-mile long super collider are already getting impassioned pleas to stop their work, some of the scientists have even received death threats.* According to a Telegraph UK article, CERN, the organization that is in charge of the LHC, has been inundated with emails and calls from concerned citizens, part-time scientists and others.* James Gillies, CERN’s public relations spokesperson, says many of the people want to delay or stop next week’s test, but there’s no chance of that happening.

Some scientists have theorized that such collisions could cause a miniature black hole to form and obliterate our planet or even cause a resonance cascade, dimensional rifts in space and time....

OzSource has been sent a poor quality video grab of a previous LHC test that took place last week, fortunately we were able to enhance the image somewhat Click the image for enhancement:

Just two days to go AEST Mark the 10th of September down on your calender, it just well could be the end of the world as we know it.
