Fate and the Large Hadron Collider

If you don't want to read the whole article the nuts and bolts are this:

Two physicists have suggested that "the hypothesized Higgs boson, which physicists hope to produce with the collider, might be so abhorrent to nature that its creation would ripple backward through time and stop the collider before it could make one"

Thus explaining the "bad luck" that has befallen the project.

I meant to post the Times article a few weeks ago, but as usual, I was lazy and put it off. After reading the following article today, however, I figured I better post both articles, since the theory seems a little more likely now. emoticon

We put the Hubble in orbit to take pictures of when time began, it had problems of it's own at the get go (something about taking fuzzy images) and a lot of people postulated that the Hubble was actually technically fine, it was just that God didn't want us imaging the past and/or basically-confirming the Big Bang.

Then we fixed it.

These things have problems because they are the bleeding-edge of our technical capabilities, and incredibly intricate, I don't think Occam's razor dictates that we leap to time-traveling particles, which doesn't make sense at face value, because of the grandfather paradox mentioned in the article (amongst other things).
