Switch it on, already!

One of my favorite supergeniuses, Brian Cox, has a great piece today at The Guardian about the final months before the LHC activation.  Money quote:

Without exploration there is no progress, and without progress our civilisation decays. It takes machines like the LHC to journey to the edge of our understanding because, quite simply, the easy stuff has all been done.

It’s part of The Guardian’s larger series of feature articles on Cern.
