CERN: Something May Come Through 'Dimensional Doors'

A top scientist at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) says that the titanic machine may possibly create or discover previously unimagined scientific phenomena, or "unknown unknowns" - for instance "an extra dimension".

"Out of this door might come something, or we might send something through it," said Sergio Bertolucci, who is Director for Research and Scientific Computing at CERN, briefing reporters including the Reg at CERN HQ earlier this week.

So let me see if I've got this right. They're going to unleash enormous amounts of energy, recreating conditions similar to those of the Big Bang, warping time and space, just to see what will happen? Cool.
