The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, Switzerland will perform the first-ever proton collision this morning at 8:30am our time. This is truly a remarkable day for science and the best thing is, you can watch it live on the CERN website. Five webcasts will be available today and the main webcast will include live footage from the control rooms for the LHC accelerator and all four LHC experiments and coverage of the press conference to announce the first collisions. Enough to excite the “inner-geek” in you!
There’s been rumours that these experiements will create black holes and destroy the earth, all of which are ridiculous of course! Enjoy the show…!
