Here's what didn't happen on Sept. 10th: The world did not end. Switching on the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland, did not trigger the creation of a microscopic black hole.
CERN, the worldâ€™s largest particle physics lab that created the Worldwide Web, exhibited its newest development on Friday: a computer network allowing some 7,000 scientists in 33 countries to connect and share data and processing power.
Scientists say they were more surprised by the overwhelming success of the world's largest atom smasher on its opening day than by the troubles it later developed.
The massive particle collider built to simulate the conditions of the "Big Bang" will not restart until spring 2009 after a technical glitch forced its shutdown, according to the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN.
SHIJIAZHUANG, China -- Hundreds of Chinese parents, some cradling infants, converged on the company at the heart of the tainted baby formula scandal Thursday, demanding refunds and asking what they can safely feed their children.

By EDD McCRACKEN EDINBURGH THE technology used in the search for the "God particle", which got under way in Switzerland last week, should have radical implications for how cancer is treated in Scotland, according to one of the top scientists involved in the project.
NOW that the euphoria and hype surrounding the search for the Higgs boson - using the Large Hadron Collider at Cern - have eased somewhat, it is perhaps opportune to raise a couple of important questions on the methodology of physical science, which seem to have been largely ignored or forgotten in the meantime.
World Wide Web creator Sir Tim Berners-Lee believes a new system needs to be implemented to help separate Internet fact from fiction.
A spokesman for the world's most powerful physics experiment said part of the computer system of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was hacked into last Wednesday.
