NOTE: Old article, April Fool's joke. Actual testing schedule HERE. Boy is my face red (I'm trashed).
Despite all my hoping and praying, the world isn't going to end on December 21st. Or at least it wasn't going to until the scientists at CERN decided to test the Large Hadron Collider that day! *breaking out party hats and noise makers* Apocalypse party!
Scientists at CERN have announced test dates for the rest of the year, as well as some curious dates can be found in the upcoming schedule. Starting Monday, December 17, 2012 and going through Friday, December 21, 2012, CERN will be launching and running a series of collisions, which are predicted to break records in high voltage collisions already set by the LHC. With these experiments, the scientists are hoping to create atomic reactions that would provide further information about anti-matter, and the big bang.
Hell yeah, the end of the world! It's just like that R.E.M. song. "It's The End of the World?" What? No -- Losing My Religion. Get your head in the game, brobro.
Thanks to joe, who -- wait, where you going with that gun in your hand? (Jimi Hendrix reference -- this post turned into a musical extravaganza!)
