The LHC, the Large Hadron Collider, is starting up at 1:30am Central Daylight time on Wednesday, September 10. The U.S. had a superconducting supercollider at one time - in Waxahachie, Texas - just down the road from Dallas. In their infinite stupidity, our government, us, we the people, decided to cut funding. It is this type of research that will free us from the constraints of a primitive internal combustion and carbon based fuel burning mode of being. I'm not sure, because I haven't done any checking, but there may be one operating elsewhere in the U.S.
These are some smart fuckers. How DO you catch a particle you can't see?
Anyway, here's some info...avail yourself...
