The $10-billion structure at Geneva collides particles at three times previous energy levels. It hopes to find smaller particles and make other physics discoveries.I have to say, I never quite understand this stuff (to understate it dramatically), but it fascinates me. (h/t to Teh 'Bride for alerting me.)
And, of course, that LA Times headline reminds me of The Simpsons episode in which Homer fakes his own death by throwing a dummy that looks like him over a cliff into the river; beavers attack it and rip its pants off just before it gets sucked into a turbine and shredded.
The next day's headline in The Springfield Shopper?
