The morning of March 30, 2010 things were getting tense at CERN. Will a chunk of bread or a typo cause embarrassment? Will the world end? Or will everything be a success with the Large Hadron Collider?

We know that it all went well in the end, because we are sitting here and not cosmic dust of some kind. So congratulations to the men and women behind the Large Hadron Collider project. And thank you for whatever roles you played in making sure that we didn't get sucked into a black hole. [CERN]
