The Large Hadron Collider is the largest and most complex scientific instrument ever built and the highest energy particle accelerator in the world.
The accelerator is located 100 m underground and runs through both French and Swiss territory. ( 27km circumference)
Year 2008 September 10th, marks the culmination of 20 years of work by over 8000 scientists thousands of engineers, technicians and support staff from over 80 different countries.
some critics say that this could create a black hole and suck up the entire world. but many say that even if a black hole is created it will vanish within a millionth of a second..

Time is flying by on this busy, crowded planet as life changes and evolves from second to second. And yet the arc of human lifespan is getting longer: 65 years is the global average way up from just 20 in the Stone Age. Modern science, however, provides a humbling perspective. Our lives indeed the life span of the human species are just blips compared to the age of the universe, at 13.7 billion years and counting. It now seems that our entire universe is living on borrowed time. How long it can survive in any form depends on whether Stephen Hawking's theory checks out.
