Black Holes Could Be Brewing Under Swizerland by Late 2009

Sounds like repairs are going swimmingly on the world's most gigantic physics experiment, the Large Hadron Collider in Swizerland. Last year, a pipe broke in the newly-built facility, spilling tons of liquid helium everywhere and setting back the experiment by over a year. But now it looks as if we'll be seeing data starting to roll in from the facility in the next 10 months. Can't wait for those beams to create a black hole! Erm, I mean to help us understand quantum particles.
According to Symmetry Breaking:
CERN today announced that the laboratory hopes to run the LHC with 5 TeV beams with collisions in late 2009, producing data suitable for physics analysis. Eventually the LHC will run with 7 TeV beams . . . A CERN management meeting on Monday will determine whether this recommendation is accepted and the start-up schedule does indeed include physics operations in late 2009.
In CERN's regular weekly LHC update, they said that as part of the campaign to avoid another incident like the one that shut down the LHC in September ‘08, a new protection system is being installed in the LHC to detect tiny electrical resistances on the superconducting busbars between magnets. Materials and electronics necessary for the system are being ordered and manufactured, with installation of some components already underway.

Lots of people are focused on how we're going to escape our planet. They want to colonize another world because it's only a matter of time before earth becomes uninhabitable. Maybe they're getting too far ahead of themselves and they should be focusing their efforts on something else. Read more
Quite a lot of people started making a living off Youtube recently. As Youtube has started accommodating video-makers to a greater extent, it has become more commercial. From Vlogs to tutorials, you can find channels producing every kind of content for their fans. Read more
