Tiny Black Holes
The Large Hadron Collider, CERN's massive particle collider in Geneva, Switzerland, is finally online. It's the most powerful physics experiment in the world, capable of creating tiny black holes as it smashes sub atomic particles together. Not to worry, though: In this podcast, physicist Dave Wark explains that there's no way these can destroy the world. This podcast was produced by David Levin.

But before he was studying the universe, Galileo was working on practical problems. And his early goals for the telescope weren't so scientific...
