If you google large hadron collider you would find tons of info with all kinds of levels of detail and info. It's interesting stuff, though I find it very easy to get completely lost.....

I only just found out what this thing was today. Luckily it didn't vaporise me, then I would have felt like a right tit.

I'm in the same boat...my astrophysist friend can go on about this for an eternity. I find it fascinating and mesmerizing, but completely over my head.

Righto, then. I voted for some tree hugging hippy. How's that warranty? Hope you got 428 months interest free from your local Harvey Norman, or better yet, paid cash and retained your soul?

I saw that! I can't recall it exactly, as it came on around 2 in the morning my time...I do remember a brief Bono mention, followed by an exploding train set.
