In a spin

So - today in Geneva the Large Hadron Collider got switched back on with a loud click and started spinning tiny bits of stuff round and round. Things collided, and... the world kept turning. For some reason, hordes of the stupid feared the Earth would be sucked into a newly created black hole and we'd all end up in some weird new galaxy being chased by enormous worms with ant-like eyes.


Instead, one of the most eagerly awaited scientific research projects ever undertaken has finally kicked into action and we can await a string of interesting new discoveries at mind-bendingly small scales. Good.
