Rob pointed me at this. It is very excellent and tells you all about the shenanigans at CERN.
And, as ever on YouTube, the comments are both mystifying and often amusing. For instance:
"omfg calm down take some chill pills dude its not gonna make a black hole" Rob's comment: Just for people keeping tracking of these things, they haven't collided anything with anything else yet. They're planning to run some slower beams into each other in a few days and then turn the power up in a few weeks. Not that this machine will destroy the world, but if it were going to do so, it wouldn't do it yet.
The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.
Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
