However I sit here Knowing that this machine will most likely change our views on life, and give us a new "Hope" or dream or something to strive for; Who knows, all i know is that people living on that day will be witness to history in the making. Maybe, maybe we can then stop killing one another, and instead zip around in 'space-time'.

The real deal begins on 21st Oct and each day they will boost the protons of 2 beams traveling in opposition direction until it travels 99.99999% to the speed of light inside the accelerator, before colliding with one another at 4 intersection points creating the big bang.
