In just a few months, the most complex and expensive scientific instrument to ever be built by mankind will be turned on. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) promises to recreate the conditions right after the Big Bang. By revisiting the beginning of time, scientists hope to unravel some of the deepest secrets of our Universe. Will the LHC be the end of us all? Will it create a black hole that will swallow earth and everything around it? Here’s a very interesting documentary from the BBC explaining everything a mere mortal should know about the Large Hadron Collider. Enjoy the show.
