LHC first beam of Proton

Did you had a look at Google today? Well, this was the logo!

In case you wonder what's the rocket look a like thingy that circles around the Google and sparks out when collide with each another - it's the Large Hadron Collider, or LHC for short.

The LHC is European Organization of Nuclear Research's (CERN) new flagship research facility. As the world’s highest energy particle accelerator, it is poised to provide new insights into the mysteries of our universe. And, half the world's particle physicists hope to achieve by triggering the LHD machine to drive two beams of particles in opposite directions around this 27km ring at 99.9999991% of the speed of light, steering the beams at four points during their circuit into head-on collisions with enough energy to recreate in miniature the cosmic circumstances that exist one trillionth of a second after the big bang. I wonder why!

If you still blur of what happened at the 27km (17-mile) circular tunnel beneath the Geneva countryside this morning at the start of an experiment which has been suggested, will unlock the secrets of the universe, then click for more details, HERE and HERE.
