Physicists have trialed an international computing grid that will help probe the moments following the Big Bang. The Large Hadron Collider Computing Grid will manage data from a huge particle accelerator at CERN in Switzerland, which it is hoped will answer mysteries in particle physics. These include whether the hypothetical Higgs Boson particle, postulated as the progenitor of mass, actually exists. In 2004 bookies Ladbrokes offered odds of 6-1 that it would be proven by 2010.
