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.

Well, all they did today was send two protons around the thing, in the same direction. The real issue will be when they send them in opposing directions to smash into each other.
