“THE $6.5 billion machine designed to recreate the conditions present at the beginning of time had to be switched off after a bird dropped a “bit of baguette” into it, causing it to overheat.
As a result, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland had to postpone their plans last week to emulate the universe’s Big Bang….”
This news article is hilarious! See the earlier post on the timing of this thing for details but really, what sort of bird flies over an apparently underground facility dropping bits of baguette. It seems so weird. And I’ve had cheap toasters that would still work with bits of baguette dropped in them.
I would love to know the exact time for when the bird with the baguette flew past & also, maybe this thing was not meant to be switched on with Saturn-Pluto squaring…Avian intervention…Amazing they knew it was a baguette too…Thoughts?
I reckon they should switch the Black Hole machine on when Jupiter conjoins Uranus at Zero Aries next year…that would be brilliant astro for a brave new world of particle physics & Dark Matter et al.
