Huzzah!

Successful test for Europe's Big Bang collider.
The world's biggest physics experiment has succeeded in its first major test as a beam of protons was successfully fired all the way around a 17-mile tunnel beneath the Swiss-French border.

The protons traveled the full length Wednesday of the $3.8 billion Large Hadron Collider that scientists hope is the next great step to understand the makeup of the universe. ... Scientists hope to see what the components of atoms are made of by smashing them together.
Hey! The world didn't end after all! Sweet.


(What? I'm a writer. It's my job to go around what-iffing. I may have stressed over this a little more than I would like to admit.)

ETA, from eofs: It could still end the world, you don't know. Therefore, we should check the world's status often.
