The Large Hadron Collider will first be activated this morning at 09:00
Central European Time (GMT + 2).
It is expected that a new universe will be created inside the LHC
(lasting an eternity for the people in it, but mere millionth of a
second for us) and it is possible that it will also create a black hole
that will suck up the earth (like the vaccuum cleaner that sucks the
pink panther and then sucks itself out of existance)
It is unclear what effect the LHC experiment may have on the connection
between my universe and the one where most of comp.os.vms lives in.
BBC said that they won't have it at full power today and it will take a
year before they risk running at at full power.
www.cern.ch is the official website. As in any modern event, they are to
have a live webcast. It is not clear what's we'll see in it. It is not
clear if we will actually hear a "big bang".
Good luck to all those who worked on that project, and lets hope that
they doN't rely on Windows to run it. And remember that, as in any
science fiction movie, all the lights in the world will dim when they
turn the power on to the collider :-) :-) :-) :-)
