Times Online has a short video clip of the first test run of the Large Hadron Collider at Cern, switched on this morning, showing the moment at which the proton beam is introduced into the first section of the ring:
At 28 seconds, Eamonn Holmes asks the bewildering question:
“What will they do with this collider after today’s events are over? Do they mothball it or does it go on and on?”

Oh, hang on a minute – you are the news.
God help us.
