It is not online in Naples, FL, like naplesplus, but in Switzerland.

The large hadron collider is how online. The first test run was successful.

You've heard of atom smashers perhaps? This will collide hadrons.

The scientists are in search of a theoretical field called the "higgs particle" or the "God particle". This particle or field (current theory has all particles as fields - rather like the toy where you have rows of metal pins and if you stick your face on it, you see an imprint of your face in the metal pins on the other side. That is how some scientists see reality- we are the shape of the pins but the thing making the pins move is impossible to detect).

This wlil be the hottest thing if it works. If it succeeds, God will be found.

The higgs particle/field (theoretical) if it is true, will tell us where mass comes from. We hear about mass -- but nobody really knows what "mass" is and where it comes from. Weird to me.

Sorry the posting is vague - but I have so much I want to say, that I can't start!

Article Repost from China: The Large Hadron Collider Our understanding of the Universe is about to change...

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a gigantic scientific instrument near Geneva, where it spans the border between Switzerland and France about 100 m underground. It is a particle accelerator used by physicists to study the smallest known particles – the fundamental building blocks of all things. It will revolutionise our understanding, from the minuscule world deep within atoms to the vastness of the Universe.

Two beams of subatomic particles called 'hadrons' – either protons or lead ions – will travel in opposite directions inside the circular accelerator, gaining energy with every lap. Physicists will use the LHC to recreate the conditions just after the Big Bang, by colliding the two beams head-on at very high energy. Teams of physicists from around the world will analyse the particles created in the collisions using special detectors in a number of experiments dedicated to the LHC.

There are many theories as to what will result from these collisions, but what's for sure is that a brave new world of physics will emerge from the new accelerator, as knowledge in particle physics goes on to describe the workings of the Universe. For decades, the Standard Model of particle physics has served physicists well as a means of understanding the fundamental laws of Nature, but it does not tell the whole story. Only experimental data using the higher energies reached by the LHC can push knowledge forward, challenging those who seek confirmation of established knowledge, and those who dare to dream beyond the paradigm.
