Happy Big Bang Day!

Although why they're calling it that I certainly don't know.  They've only just started the first beam going 'round.  There won't be a collision for another month or so.

I think it's pretty cool, myself.  

Reasons you shouldn't panic:

Slashdot  The comments are more revealing than the blurb.
Livescience  A while ago, but pertinent.
Discover  They even did the research again.  So stop worrying.

Even when there is a collision they still won't "recreate" the big bang. They'll just release energy in amounts similar to moments just after the big bang.

So you don't hear any sucking noise over there?
