The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a particle accelerator which will probe deeper into matter than ever before. Due to switch on in 2007, it will ultimately collide beams of protons at an energy of 14 TeV . Beams of lead nuclei will be also accelerated, smashing together with a collision energy of 1150 TeV.
A TeV is a unit of energy used in particle physics. 1 TeV is about the energy of motion of a flying mosquito. What makes the LHC so extraordinary is that it squeezes energy into a space about a million million times smaller than a mosquito.
Housed 100-kilometers below the earth, the LHC is currently being built by CERN.
The Large Hadron Collider makes mini big bangs.

CERN - "Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire" - The world's largest particle physics laboratory. CERN is credited for the creation of the internet. They're also in the process of making a 27-kilometer circumfrence particle accelerator. CERN is currently studying antimatter and potential uses in the future.
CERN was a big part of Dan Brown's book "Angels & Demons"

The X-33 was a technology demonstrator for NASA's "next-generation" of space launch vehicles.
Ya know, they say CERN has the only X-33 rocket

Resembling an imposing 2-seater buggy, the Peugeot Hoggar looks avant-garde and unreal at first sight.
The Hoggar is a sports car for extreme conditions, with two seats and two up to the minute power trains deployed transversally, one at the front, the other at the rear, giving it the attributes of a 4-wheel drive vehicle.
It also looks a lot like the Warthog from Halo.

I wonder if a chain-gun is in the Peugeot Hoggars dealer options...
