When activated, it is theorized that the collider will produce the elusive Higgs boson, the observation of which could confirm the predictions and 'missing links' in the Standard Model of physics and could explain how other elementary particles acquire properties such as mass. The verification of the existence of the Higgs boson would be a significant step in the search for a Grand Unified Theory, which seeks to unify three of the four fundamental forces: electromagnetism, the strong force, and the weak force.

Yheah, that's pretty much a cardinal rule. I'm gonna have to read a bit of stuff over again to have an understandable point ~ but!! the long and short of it is if you turn a time machine on (the hadron collector could do nicely) then a message (that has been sent err. 200 years hence?) would be received (possibly) at the time you flicked the thing on (as that would be the first possible opportunity).....
Don't expect a Delorean to bust outta nowhere with a midget and a loon inside any possible time travel would only be limited to data (if at all)... still would be nice to hear from the ungrateful great great grand genetic experiments

If you're just talking about the concept yes, time machines already exist.
The experiment was already done a couple of years ago and some scientists proved that the laser light they emitted was actually received before it was sent. It was published on Nature, the most relevant scientific journal we have today (I'm proud to have one article there on a different field).
I do not remember the details but this was just some nanoseconds variation. Light was sent to the future. The receptor machine acknowledged the light reception before it was sent by the emitter machine.
Now, if we talk about going back thats another story.
