CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC)

The CERN LHC (Large Hadron Collider) is set to begin operation tomorrow!  Unfortunately, I have not seen a ton in the mainstream press until today.  The LHC will help scientists to test theories such as what occurred in the fraction of a second after the big bang.  There is a good video on youtube (below) that gives a tour.  Click on the picture above for some great photos of the collider.  Also check out the articles on Boston.com, Sciam.com , and CNN to learn more about the collider.  I also found some much more detailed information on the theories to be tested at Cosmic Variance.
