Is the Large Hadron Collider Jinxed by its own Future?

“Forget the far-fetched belief that it will create a black hole, two distinguished physicists have gone even further claiming nature itself is stopping the troubled £4.4billion project from getting off the ground.” (Telegraph.UK)

The pair of theoretical physicists say that the Higgs boson, the postulated ‘God particle’ the LHC is supposed to discover, could ripple back in time from a future in which it exists and stop its own creation by interfering with the operation of the troubled particle accelerator, which is just about to come back online after its initial operation was beset by malfunction.

    In combination with the zombie story above, this certainly shows how weird science is getting and how thin the line between science and science fiction is getting (and, of course, the line between reality and parody as well).

    My partner’s comment on this one was to ask, “Is the Higgs Boson doing this in all the universes or just in ours?”
