As well as Radio 4's Big Bang Day (including a Torchwood special afternoon play) there has been a lot of media attention about the Large Hadron Collider being switched on tomorrow.
Most of this has the scientists denying that they will cause the end of the world/universe and I wonder if there would have been half as much coverage of this event otherwise. This further lead me think, who started the apocalyptic stories in the first place? What better way to increase the profile of your experiment that you don't think will get noticed in the mainstream press than doom and gloom. Shame that it doesn't lower house prices or cause immigration, then it would have been a really big story.

The blog contains interesting knowledge. However, I wold like to have a little more in-depth insight to the topic since I am an education consultant at Pakistan and working on a new project; that is UK Student Visa Consultant In Pakistan and these students need to know more information regarding the topic. Would love to hear back from you so that I can give a little more counselling and consultation to the aspiring students.
