Most of us lead a life running about our daily chores with little or no excitement. Same cannot be said about peopl working on creating world's largest particle accelerator - The Large Hadron Collider being built more than 100 meters underground at border between France and Switzerland. The goal of this effort - which is global in nature is about unravelling the mystery of elusive subatomic particle - Boson with an ultimate aim to unravel the secrets of origin of universe, Grand Unified Theory, and many other unanswered questions about the universe as we know it. Today there was a article on this in local Marathi newspaper by eminent science writer Dr. Bal Phondke. Wikipedia contains very good information on the same. For all those who have a scientific bent of mind, take a look at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Large_Hadron_Collider The experiments are expected to being in just a few months so stay tuned for more updates!
