Hadron Collider begins its journey to unveil the mysteries behind unvierse

Hadron Collider begins its journey
I would like to share the news of Hadron Collider and its milestone in the history of Mankind.
It is going to answer for the questions like how was the universe created?, how is a particle acquire mass. There are so many theory in answering these questions. Still there is no confirmation in correct answer.
What is Hadron Collider
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator complex, intended to collide opposing beams of protons (one type of hadron) charged with high energy. Its main purpose is to explore the validity and limitations of the Standard Model, the current theoretical picture for particle physics. It is theorized that the collider will confirm the existence of the Higgs boson, the observation of which could confirm the predictions and missing links in the Standard Model, and could explain how other elementary particles acquire properties such as mass.

The $9 billion LHC project, which sits astride the Franco-Swiss border, operates a tunnel buried 50 meters to 150 meters below the ground. The tunnel, or tube, is designed to facilitate and control a head-on collision between two beams of the same kind of particles -- either protons or ions. Traveling through a vacuum comparable to outer space, the beams are guided around the tube by more than 1,000 superconducting magnets.

Milestone in the history of mankind LHC begins testing
On Wednesday morning, just outside of Geneva, scientists shot a particle beam fully around a 17-mile loop in the world's most powerful particle accelerator -- the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Twenty years after development of the collider began, a particle beam made the full journey around the accelerator for the first time. It's a forebear to the time when scientists will accelerate two particle beams toward each other at 99.9% of the speed of light.
Rumors about LHC
While scientists are using the collider to find an answer to how the universe was created, there have been increasing rumors circulating around the Internet that the experiments will destroy the Earth and possibly the entire galaxy. People have been fearful that when the particles collide at high energy, they will create a black hole that will suck everything and everyone into it.

its good to know about it? where did you get that information?

I got it from Wikipedia and latest news websites, i wonder the amazing mankind's innovations and development of technology.

Guys, Swiss just disappeared into thin air! LOL! Just kidding :-)

I liked the idea of 'Hardron Collider' and wish such expirement shall reveal something for the sake of humanity.
