Large Hadron Collider - The Search For The Higgs

Hello boys and girls it's science time.

Ok ... on Wednesday were all doomed.

End of the, maybe.

When they start smashing protons into each other at near speed of light the "Hadron Collider" could generate a " black hole "

A black hole is a region of space in which the gravitational field is so powerful that nothing, not even electromagnetic radiation (e.g. visible light), can escape its pull after having fallen past its event horizon.

The reason these clever people are doing this is to find " the higgs " The Higgs particle, popularised as the "God Particle", the un-observed particle that binds and holds all mass together.

It's really interesting stuff, so put away half an hour and watch all 3 videos
below in order, after that pray this thing wont suck the planet inside out.

You may have only 2days left so ask that hot bird out .. quickly !
