I love April Fool’s Day…

…well that’s not altogether true, but I __do__ love the April Fool’s Day efforts made by the media; for example;

I also rather liked this gem:

CERN in talks with London Underground to use service tunnels attached to the Circle Line for the next generation particle accelerator…

(Thanks go to Paul and El / ellefurtle respectively for these two little happinesses 🙂 )

I need to remember where I was…

Today, the 30th of March 2010 the Large Hadron Collider at CERN successfully “ramped up” to 3.5 TeV and began to collide for the first time. The results of this day’s experimentation could change the world forever, on a scale that is not dissimilar to the first time that Gallileo first realised that the Earth rotated around the Sun, or the day that Isaac Newton first formulated the law of Gravity, or the first time that Einstein first published his Special Theory of Relativity.

*Fingers Crossed*

After all, finding the Higgs Boson would be useful, exciting and basically insanely cool; Go CERN Go!
