Is the grand design within our grasp
Some confirmation may be only months away because of the experiments currently underway at the Large Hadron Collider.
ATLAS particle physics experiment
ATLAS is also an experiment. An experiment is a system designed to ask nature a question. On ATLAS, we want to know a whole bunch of things: what is the nature of dark matter? Are there extra dimensions? Why do particles have mass? To answer these questions, we have to ask: what happens when you smash protons together at 7 trillion electron volts?
Hmmm reminds me of the opening act of 2001
And while Hawking is stirring up controversy because he claims we don't need a god to explain creation, I am almost ready to think the miracle of Hawking (the fact that his disease hasn't killed him yet and that he can do amazing physics all in his head) must be due to some divine intervention.
That mankind is willing to devote resources to these lofty goals but not to mitigation of climate change is a mystery
