-- her fired together more than a mile -- -- each other head on at full speed.
That's what scientists in Switzerland have now done except they use sub atomic particles.
Move and it near the speed of light.
And they say the success of this experiment using -- hadron collider.
What -- shed new light on the big bang and answer some of the most exciting questions about the universe and that -- -- was a theoretical physics professor.
Have been in Science Channel series -- science this is the impossible.
Based on his best selling book next to see you.
-- -- that graphic that will queue that up -- that for -- -- -- -- got this giant donut right continues to smash particles together right to simulate the Big -- from so many years ago and they worked -- this sucker for sixteen years at night they finally did it and you say it's only get pea shooter.
Compared Clinton's not -- -- and.
Ten billion euros the words of over 5000 business over sixteen years and the machine is finally operational I think it's -- let -- do for us because we're gonna unravel the secret of the Big -- where it came from what happened before creation.
What happened before Genesis chapter one verse one.
And also -- -- even answer eternal questions like time is time travel possible are there other dimensions are their parallel universe is.
We can get -- glimmers of these cosmic questions with this -- think we can figure out what happened before the Big Bang.
You think we can figure out whether -- not time travel is possible and that's what -- -- about being French Swiss border and that's right we're gonna find not just particles we're gonna try to prove a theory called string theory which is what I do for a living.
String -- exists in 1011 dimensional hyper space and other dimensions.
And actually -- that may -- our universe was created by the collision of two other universities.
And may be argued everything is a bubble of some sort and there are other bubbles out there other expanding in -- nobody's other bubbles mean to you.
These are other universe is where perhaps they could be other lines of physics I mean this is huge really is greater than the cup cricket revolution.
When we realized that there are stars and and only now galaxy we have breaking up for three years -- never talk like this before well this is what I do for a living some people think it's too hard to understand but I think the average person can realize hey.
He's aware -- you here and start track right and the concepts you here but no it never works on these things.
That's why are that's with a -- -- going to see him put this up Everest sir Isaac Newton gravity.
No -- -- -- other Thomas seven to send an electro magnetism that trying to put that up there -- -- Einstein an.
MC square was -- the nuclear power that's what you're right about today in The Wall Street Journal that guy that's significant that big we're talking about you know.
Find all the forces of nature of their foreign forces that make the world move.
Each time a force with unraveled it -- the industrial revolution and the electric revolution.
And now the nuclear revolution and now we have a super force a super -- so we're gonna try to unravel which created the universe looked at what does that lead to.
Do what do we know yet we don't know yet not in the short term people sable wagon but get better color television if I get -- in in every cell service yeah I'll admit there's no.
These are cosmic questions questions that don't -- -- directly.
On our lives by that lets not -- -- in The Wall Street Journal well done by the way and I recommended to viewers at home.
You wrote about something in here that I never knew.
Ronald Reagan approve this to be built outside of Dallas Texas they spent a billion dollars dug a giant hole and not gonna happen right in 1993.
They spend another billion dollars in field in the whole moon and all these physics professors are conducting these experiments in Europe.
They could have that happening here at home.
And you're suggesting there's a bit of a brain drain from the United States -- -- -- to pursue projects like these guys.
This machine could have been arm machine Ronald Reagan -- a machine three times bigger than this pea shooter in Geneva Switzerland.
But congress canceled it and now the Europeans are creating the new back in the physics.
Physicists are leaving the United States to go to Geneva Switzerland they get this brand new machine and what -- we get we get a two billion dollar hole made that call.
The United States congress cancel the machine over the objections of president Ronald Reagan -- we don't like being number two.
What we like heaven you meet you thank you midnight -- with us today fascinating.
So billion dollars as of today the whole dep to build that's a million dollar com fill in the -- billion dollar decision by congress -- Ability and depth and now brain drain to -- we get a volley as -- get the machine we get a hole out from.
That's interesting that's interesting to cook over thank you very much which you know they felt all right this.
