An attempt to understand 'make-up' of the universe

The anxieties, speculations & suspense of a possible collapse of our earth is over! The first step in the world’s largest particle collider experiment was successfully completed by firing a beam of protons all the way around a 27 km tunnel, in what scientists hope is the next great step to understanding the makeup of the universe. Two white dots flashed on a computer screen indicating that the protons had traveled the full length of the large Hadron Collider. It ended an eager wait of 9,000 physicists around the world who now have much greater microscopic vision before to smash the components of atoms together in attempts to see how they are made.

So, a long wait of almost over 20 years finally has seen it's destiny. Though, physicists agree with the perception that the collider could, theoretically, create small black holes, they do not see any major negative consequences happening in near future. A report released on Friday by CERN scientists reveals that any black hole created would be tiny, and would not have enough energy to stick around very long before dissolving.

Now what can be expected from this 3.2–6.4 billion (Euro) Large Hadron Collider experiment? Well, the scientists involved in the experiment claims that the underlying structure of the universe is going to be revealed in a much greater degree; including, perhaps, the elusive Higgs boson, the nature of dark energy and whether super-strings exist. The experiment will possibly show us how to manipulate vast amounts of data, in precisely the way that we will have to in the coming decades as we try to do more complex, distributed computing.

An American communications trainee - known as Alpinekat on the web, has become famous for her "CERN Rap" which explains in rhymes working of the Large Hadron Collider. It's a just under 5 minutes long clip & has already scored more than 1.4 million hits on YouTube. Many of you might have already seen this clip and for those who have not, here it goes:
