Symmetry Breaking online
23 March 2010

CERN has announced that the first attempt to collide protons in the Large Hadron Collider at the record energy of 7 TeV* (3.5 TeV per beam) will take place on March 30. A live webcast will be available on the day dubbed “LHC First Physics” from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Central European Time (2:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern time). More information about the webcast will be available soon at the LHC First Physics Web site.
(* 1 TeV: A million million electronvolts)

These are the experiments searching for the “God” particle. My concern, despite the intellectual brilliance of these scientists, is the “law of unintended consequences.”
