Boston Globe has some very nice pictures of the almost-finished Large Hadron Collider.

Supposedly they're starting up soon. They're cooling it down to 1.9 K or something, which takes time since it's huge.

I know a lot of physics professors at MIT who are going to be quite eager to see how this beast turns out. Pretty much every single one of them tried to talk about this guy:

Scientists hope the Large Hadron Collider will help understand how the universe was formed. Skeptics fear it will lead to the Earth's demise

Quote:
Fears have emerged that the collider could produce black holes that could suck up anything around them -- including the whole Earth. Such fears prompted legal actions in the U.S. and Europe to halt the operation of the Large Hadron Collider, alleging safety concerns regarding black holes and other phenomena that could theoretically emerge.

Although physicists acknowledge that the collider could, in theory, create small black holes, they say they do not pose any risk. A study released Friday by CERN scientists explains that any black hole created would be tiny, and would not have enough energy to stick around very long before dissolving


We're all going to die.

The link doesn't work unless you go directly to the picture, but yes, that is definitely problematic...

Also, the thing is on and we're not all dead yet as far as I can tell.

This guy has to be lying, despite the tremendous plausibility of everything he has to say. We have another 4 years before the world ends.
