Hadron Collidor Turned on This Wednesday

The collider goes live this Wednesday, the 10th....If you google "Hadron Collider", you will get a ton of sites that walk through different aspects of the collider. However, my favorite is the article that claims that scientists that have been working on this project are getting death threats. If you scroll down, there is a comment by one of the readers to the article that states,

"The only substance behind these threats is that some religious nut went full retard, never go full retard."

Full retard, well put. I tried to blog about this

Here are some other great sites, including CERN's Operational Site, below:
