CERN's LHC to go full throttle very soon !

Between now and February next year Cern's LHC will start to use the higher energy collisions. These powerful collisions are the major concern among some scientists who think there could be major safety issues:

Higher-energy collisions should occur before February 2010 and perhaps even before Christmas, Evans said.

The LHC is capable of collisions at 14 trillion electron volts (TeV), but some of the machine's most extraordinary discoveries could be made at much lower energy levels.

For example, scientists predict that the long-sought Higgs boson, sometimes called the God particle, could be discovered in the one to three TeV range.

"If we go to higher energies in February, there is a good chance the Higgs will be found," Evans said.

Lets hope there is a huge bankers meeting going on inside when that happens.
