only a wee bit nervous.

So the Large Hadron Collider gets switched on in 9 days....

Science aim to recreate the conditions of the big bang.

Now come on, nothing can go wrong with that plan right? grin

Anyone worried? hmm

Disclaimer: don't be scared, dp says its all been risk assessed and there is No Need to Panic. And he is a scientist so he is mad knows.

The only thing they are doing on September 10th is switching it on and sending one beam ALL the way round the circuit.
They seem to have been taking months just to get the whole thing to cool down until it's COLDER than space Brrrr!
