LHC Powers Down... End potentially delayed for 2 years.

We're a bit late to the party here.  Forgive us?   But just a brief update on the Large Hadron Collider.

Apparently it's finally powering down - for 2 years - to install some updates so it will finally be able to perform at full capacity.  Maybe that's when it will finally destroy us all. []

And so it begins....

It begins....

this really happened...  Meteorite explodes over Russia (

[UPDATE 2013-02-15 13:46] And here we thought this couldn't get any freakier... "A poll on the website for the Ridus news agency shows that 51 percent of Russian respondents believe today's meteor is the start of an alien invasion" according to the Washington Post's Max Fisher. [washington post]

Good News Wednesday - LHC didn't destroy us in 2012

The good news this Wednesday, other than this being the first Good News Wednesday post in almost 2 years, is that the Large Hadron Collider didn't kill us in 2012. EIGN is now cautiously optimistic we will make it through 2013 without major incident. (At least one caused by the LHC).

Oh, and they also found that whole "god particle" thingy. Good for them. (discover magazine)
