Monday's Apocalyptic News

It isn't a science fiction story, it just sounds like one. Scientists will fire up a massive particle accelerator on Wednesday aiming to discover the hypothetical 'God particle', aka Higgs Boson. A worldwide network of some 60,000 computers are to be tasked to sift through results of the test to find the elusive particle.

The collision of particles, which will occur at near light-speed, is meant to create conditions which existed in the universe just after the "Big Bang". However, some fear the event will create a wee tiny micro-black hole which will devour the planet and maybe the solar system.

Maybe you should say the things you've always meant to say, do the things you've meant to do, since we may all explode soon. (A live webcast of the test firing will be shown here.)
