Scientists create miniature Big Bang (so, like a Small Pop)

The CERN Supercollider has a way of fading in and out of the news, probably because their spate of research doesn’t always lend itself to a sexy headline. But this week the news is big enough that it nearly eclipses the report on a cricket with the world’s largest testicles. (They account for 14 percent […]

End of the world put on hold until Spring 2009
