The Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, will perform the first-ever proton collision tomorrow morning — via live stream.
It’s a big day for science, and you don’t have to miss any of it if you have a laptop with Wi-Fi nearby, because most of the event will be live streamed on the CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) website.
The webcast begins at 2:00 a.m. ET tomorrow morning and will continue through 12:15 p.m. ET. CERN has published a minute-by-minute schedule of what you’ll see; the main event is the first attempt to collide protons at seven trillion electric volts. That will go down one hour into the webcast.
Folks are joking that this massive scientific experiment will destroy the world. That’s nonsense, of course. But the experiments that will be conducted there will be groundbreaking in figurative ways. No embed has been provided, so you’ll have to jump over to the site at the designated hour to watch.
