If the world ends next month, it's been nice knowing you all...

Those wacky physicists over at CERN in Switzerland turned on their  new big, bad particle accelerator today, called the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

They're trying to recreate the Big Bang, the believed beginning of our universe, and some people think that when the thing gets up to full power, around October 21, that it could create a black hole that will swallow our planet and we'll all die.
