No it is not Ahmadinejad this time.
Today Scientists in switzerland hope that a supercollider designed to accelerate protons to energies of 7 trillion electron volts and then smash them together, recreates conditions similar to the primordial fireball only a trillionth of a second after the Big Bang.
The Downside to all this Science, the experiment may create a black hole in the center of the earth that will slowly eat away the Earth.
Moral of the Story: Don't let Ahmadinejad built a supercollider in Iran.
