What Happens When the LHC is Acitivated?

Funny thing is, scientists have theories, but they don't really know. It's pretty exciting stuff, at least from a physicist's point of view. Steven Hawking does not think we'll see the so-called "God's (Higgs) particle." I say, Bosons for all!! But what will we really see? We may learn something very new about mass.

Trip, speculating after reading the news, suggested that it was a good thing the collider is under France...and a better thing that the Swiss are involved. I wonder what he means? ;)

Interesting how things time out. My son's voice teacher (a real opera singer) told us last week to be sure to look on YouTube for "Large Hadron Rap." You might want to check it out:
