It was announced today that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is planned to be reactivated later this year, sometime in November. Having been fascinated with the LHC for years, I’ll be eagerly await the results. Will they immediately find evidence of a Higgs Boson , proving the existence of the Higgs field, ending one of the most fundamental questions Physics has yet to answer? Or will they simply rip a hole in spacetime and destroy our galaxy? I’m betting on the former.
While the science behind what’s going on at LHC may be overwhelming for some, the quest to explore the origins of our Universe is something everyone can understand and enjoy. Now we just need to wait three months to run a 0.000000001 second experiment.
