Large Hadron Rap

Click on the link above to see a new hit on You Tube...about the biggest science experiment in the world: the Large Hadron Collider.

Yesterday, September 10, the experiment started. Well, to be honest, the first step is taken before a real interesting physics experiment can start. They still have to increase the energy, and they still have to collide two beams on each other....

Some say the LHC will look at the ultimate building blocks of matter...well, we will never know whether we have found the ultimate building blocks...we just try to understand more about our universe and about the building blocks of matter. That´s it.

Some say the LHC will look at the Big Bang...well we can´t simulate the Big Bang. But may be the LHC will be able to look at a state of matter that was present a fraction of a second after the Big Bang...
