It works, it works!


Finally you can rush out and buy your "Protons ' r ' Us" t-shirt. The Large Hadron Collider works. No bread-crumbs. No shit.

The LHC accelerated protons to energies of 1.2 trillion electron volts apiece and then crashed them together, eclipsing a record for collisions held by an American machine, the Tevatron, at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Illinois.

Yes. Machines hold records and have competitions.

  1. Me, I'm a big fan of the LHC. I'm all for it accelerating protons to trillions of eV. Comon, it can't be worse than anything that twit Obama is doing to the world ;-)

  2. It's a beaut, isn't it Cubicle?

    The LHC is one of my favorite things.

    Mind you, our astronomers keep finding some awesome stuff too.

    Bless the pure scientists.

    *Sigh*
