Smashing Protons

March 30, 2010

If you read the book Angels & Demons by Dan Brown or saw the movie based on it, this story about smashing protons together may strike you as a bit familiar. I wonder if we’ll have anti-matter soon…

Their claim is that we’ll have the “God particle” within two – three years.

In my opinion, this breakthrough does have some significance in science and energy, but for explaining how the universe was made, meh, it doesn’t really matter to me because I know who did it.
