Right so we all didn't die when the Large Hadron Collider was switched on in Geneva this morning. This amazing piece of kit is gonna circulate particles round its 17 mile circumference recreating energies not seen since the beginning of the Universe when particles smash together at near the speed of light.

The crazy thing is that the Scientists behind this amazing bit of kit have recieved death threats and tearful phone calls pleading for them to stop because they feared it would spell the end of the world. Will the LHC produce a host of mini black holes that in turn will consume the earth? only time will tell ;)

"Anyone who thinks the LHC will destroy the world is a t---." - Prof Brian Cox of Manchester University. Couldn't put it better myself.
