|Thus, as the first second of creation came to an end, everything -- every force of nature, every elementary particle, as well as the composite protons and neutrons -- was in place for the universe as we know it to eventually develop. Atoms of matter would emerge, and later molecules would form -- among them a very special double-helix made of many sub-molecules that would constitute a crucial kind of code: DNA. And as life would evolve over many millions of years later, it would culminate in sentient, thinking beings determined to find out where they came from, how, and why. While the 'why' part may elude us, perhaps forever, the Large Hadron Collider has over the last six weeks already supplied us with two important pieces of information about the 'where' and the 'how.' Physicists tell us that this is just the beginning.|
