They are looking for the “new physics,” beyond the standard model, that ruled the early universe."
Dark matter... New physics...
"Massive amounts of data are expected to be generated during a decade of accelerator operation. The amount of data also will scale up by a factor of 50, Fast said.
It will be one of the largest scientific samples of data ever, exceeding all the written works in the history of the world several times over, according to PNNL."
All this is happening in Japan. So if a black hole all of a sudden swallows up Japan...
