Today there was a big step in the biggest physics experiment in history: two beams of protons were fired (in oppositte directions) around the 17-mile underground ring located part in Switzerland and part in France.
“The CERN experiments could reveal more about “dark matter,” antimatter and possibly hidden dimensions of space and time. It could also find evidence of the hypothetical particle — the Higgs boson — which is sometimes called the “God particle” because it is believed to give mass to all other particles, and thus to matter that makes up the universe.”
But there are people talking about Apocalipsis, about Nostradamus, about Dark holes…
A scariest graphic approach:
These dangers have been discarded by the scientifics involved in the experiment.
A very good scientific explanation of the experiment can be found here:

And another explanation, in this case with music, showing that physics also have a sense of humor:
