LSD's inventor Albert Hofman called it "medicine for the soul". The Beatles wrote songs about it. Secret military mind control experiments sought to exploit its hallucinogenic powers. Outlawed in 1966, LSD became a street drug and developed a reputation as the dangerous toy of the counterculture, capable of inspiring either moments of genius, or a descent into madness. Now science is taking a fresh look at LSD, including the first human trials in over 35 years.

For millennia, people have wanted to understand the universe. They have looked at the night skies, and wondered what makes the stars shine. November 26, 2007, had promised to be an extraordinary date - it was the day scheduled by scientists to recreate the conditions right after the Big Bang. This was when the building blocks of the universe were created. By revisiting the beginning of time, scientists hoped to unlock some of the universe's deepest secrets. Sometime in the coming months the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the most complex scientific instrument ever built, will recreate this phenomenon. By turning on the LHC scientists hoped to finally reveal one of the most elusive particles in our Universe - the Higgs boson, also called the God particle.
