Call me cynical but guess what they cranked up again, days before the Christchurch and Japanese earthquakes? Hmm, if you said the Large Hadron Collider you’d be right. At the beginning of March, following a 10 week winter shutdown, the scientists in Switzerland restarted the particle smashing machine (aka big bang theory machine) deep in a ring shaped tunnel under the Swiss mountains. As I recall when this happened last year we had the Haiti and Chile earthquakes. Coincidence? I think not!
