That lovely physics apparatus - the Large Hadron Collider - is poised to start up again in a couple of months. As if blasting the moon wasn’t enough for scientist, we now would like make anti-matter (wow, was Dan Brown onto something?) and re-create the Big Bang Theory. The newest theory, however, is even more frightening - the collider is being thwarted by itself... or its self from the future.
Whoa, what?! I don’t rightly understand exactly what this Higgs boson thing is but why on earth would science create something so against nature that the very fabric of time could fold over and “ripple backward through and stop the collider.” No, really, this isn't science fiction.
While Obama is getting the Nobel, it looks as if the past winners and noms are all getting together and playing a dangerous game with our planet.
