According to CERN’s own website the LHC’s first beam will take place tomorrow on 9.10.08.
CERN reiterates safety of LHC on eve of first beam. Geneva, 5 September 2008. A report published today in the peer reviewed Journal of Physics G: Nuclear and Particle Physics provides comprehensive evidence that safety fears about the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are unfounded. The LHC is CERN’s new flagship research facility. As the world’s highest energy particle accelerator, it is poised to provide new insights into the mysteries of our universe.
I find it very interesting that the “thing” they say they are looking for they call the “God Particle“! To find out more, read this article from Bloomberg.com Scientists Search for Missing Mass, `God Particle’
Reminds me of the verse in II Timothy 3:7 “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
Even Google has dedicated its logo to the LHC today, knowing that today is the day. I watch an hour or so long documentary on the History Channel last night about CERN, the LHC and other massive, mind-boggling experiments that are taking place there. You could probably download the documentary from iTunes. Much of the History Channel’s documentaries are posted there and can be downloaded for free under video podcasting.
