The biggest mystery in the universe, according to world famous astrophysicist Stephen Hawking http://www.hawking.org.uk who will turn 70 on Sunday, is WOMEN.
“ I have had ALS for practically all my adult life yet it has not prevented me from having a very attractive family and being successful in my work.”
While Stephen Hawking has managed to survive nearly 5 decades with Lou Gehrig disease and needs a computer and voice synthesizer to speak, the wheelchaired Cambridge University professor is renowned for solving the most complex riddles in modern physics and decoding the biggest mysteries in the Universe.
Big Bang, Black Holes, no problem for British scientist, Stephen Hawking.
However – “ Women, they are a Complete Mystery.” – Stephen Hawking
According to Scientists: Exoplanet Corot-7b , one of hundreds of known Planets in our ever expanding Universe , has a rocky density similar to Earth.
However , if you’re planning on going there to form a Life Colony, be aware the trip is 500 Light years Away or stated another way : 3000 Trillion miles away. And once there the Temperature is a Hellish 3600 Fahrenheit
CERN and the Large Hadron Collider Atom Smasher – Is it an investigation into the makeup of the universe — or dangerous tampering with nature that could spell doomsday.
The multi-billion dollar Large Hadron Collider will explore the tiniest particles and come close to reenacting the big bang, the theory that a colossal explosion created the universe.

And AP Associated Press has this video out with scientists saying the atom-smasher Won’t bring Armageddon.
Smashing Atoms at 99.9 % The Speed of Light – The Largest Scientific Test in History. Best of Success
Update: The world’s biggest physics experiment, the Large Hadron particle collider has begun 9-10-08 in a 17-mile tunnel below the French-Swiss border, producing so much data that even the massive computing power at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, can’t handle it all. The LHC Grid, a network of 60,000 computers, will analyze what happens when protons are hurled at each other inside the collider.
Particle physicists celebrated on Wednesday after the long-awaited startup of the Large Hadron Collider, designed to expose secrets of the cosmos, passed its first test with flying colors. Cheers and champagne marked the breakthrough, rather than the cataclysmic suck of a black hole, as doomsayers had feared.
The mission aims at resolving some of the greatest enigmas in physics: whether a so-called “God particle” exists that would account for the nature of mass; an explanation for “dark matter” and “dark energy” that account for 96 percent of the cosmos; and whether other dimensions exist in parallel to our own. It’s about acquiring knowledge for humanity about the behaviour of fundamental matter.
The LHC took nearly 20 years to complete and at six billion Swiss francs (3.76 billion euros, 5.46 billion dollars) is one of the costliest and most complex scientific experiments ever attempted.
It was a historic day for CERN and mankind’s thirst for knowledge. Stay tuned.
