So keep an eye on the newspapers/channels. It would take at least 2-3 years at least to analyse the data.
I think i have already heard of this LHC. Once again, in some documentary or perhaps Horizon only. Isnt it about the Particle Accelerator and was finally turned on in November 07 or something and the data generated would be to understand the Big Bang theory and how the universe was formed? And it was said to be pretty dangerous too as it could trigger a blck hole or something. Saw this in October 07 and havnt heard of any developments or what happened when the experiment actually took place.

Perhaps you could enlighten me. Maybe a few links or video downloads which would update me.

Glad it was of help to you. Have posted again

Youd be surprised at how many people in India and outside the scientific community use Macs. I love to work with Leopard too, specially Quick Look. Its the best feature i ever used and the reason why i shifted to Leopard.
Yes, i was previously using Tiger, Leopard is built on it and the additional features like quick look and time machine made me shift to leopard. Else i was very happy & content with Tiger.

You heard it correct, though the claim that it would help understand some mysteries of big bang is a bit far fetched. It may do so in an indirect way. First, it would look for a particle called Higgs which is very much for the present theory of particle physics(not string theory) to be valid. Next, we would look for some new signals which might point at some new symmetries of our nature, called supersymmetry. The latter is crucial for many developments on the theoretical front though there are many competing theories which do not require supersymmetry. So, if we get a new signal, all these theories have to be tested for their validity. This would turn the whole subject into a fun game and quite exciting too.

Okay, I shall do that once I get some free time.

Quite impressive. It should be like that. Mac is so advanced OS, people in our country must extract benefits out of it. Once people from India adopt it in their day to day life, I am sure that its price will go down.
