Mini Big Bang at LHC --
mercilessly stolen from and AM Tweet I noticed on her page!
Large Hadron Collider (LHC) generates a 'mini-Big Bang'
Dr David Evans: "From conception to design and building this, it's taken about 20 years."
The Large Hadron Collider has successfully created a "mini-Big Bang" by smashing together lead ions instead of protons.
The scientists working at the enormous machine achieved the unique conditions on 7 November.
The experiment created temperatures a million times hotter than at the centre of the Sun.

CooL!! We were there at the Atlas building just last month when we toured CERN. I got my geek on in Geneva.
I wish I were a physicist. This is an exciting time for them. If anyone from CERN reads this: CONGRATULATIONS!
