    And it may find the "God" particle, the Higgs Boson:

    If we find it, it will be monumental. If we don't find it, it will require a major overhaul of elementary theoretical physics.

    Take your pick which is more exciting.

  2. How is this Haron colliders different from the other circular colliders already in existence?

    huh take my pick hmmm let me see.. i think i choose door #3 :p
  5. The Discovery Channel had a documentary on the construction of the collider.

    It was very interesting from an engineering perspective. Wielding the size of some of the components, setting them in tight spaces, and the critical precision that was involved was fascinating.
