The “Big Bang” experiment is under way.
Doom-mongers were predicting the end of the World, having even tried to stop the experiment through the courts, but failed, and the Large Hadron Collider was started up (or whatever they do to it), after a short delay (someone had forgotten to wind up the cuckoo clock).
Apparently, this experiment will allow scientists to see how the Universe was formed all those years ago – like I really care. But then, science at this level goes straight over my head.
I am sure that there is a good reason to understand what happened in the Universe a few billion years ago, but I can’t see it.
I try to look forward, and how the Universe was formed is not high on my priority list. After all, once we know, what are we going to do? Try to change things? I hope not!
