Crave Podcast 102: Crave visits the Large Hadron Collider

Boy, do we have a show for you. This week Crave has ventured underground to the Large Hadron Collider to have a look at the machine that will end the world! Or not

Boy, do we have a show for you. This week the Crave Podcast has ventured underground to the Large Hadron Collider to have a look at the machine that will either end the world, or make us gods. Or just confuse us even more.

We also covered some other news in episode 102 -- just in case the world didn't end, and that. First up, Glasgow underground trains have been blessed with mobile phone coverage. Seriously, we didn't even know Glasgow had a tube.

Also in the news, Lembit Opik MP -- the politician who nearly married a Cheeky Girl -- has emerged as the 21st century's civil rights hero. He braved arrest on Tuesday, as he rode a Segway outside the Houses of Parliament, protesting against the funny-looking personal transporter being banned on UK roads. "It's Segways or Strangeways!" he cried, which is obviously the new "I have a dream".

Next, Google has hooked up with HSBC Principle and others to fund a satellite network aimed at connecting three billion people who currently can't access the Internet. But it's not stopping there -- Google is also planning to launch its own floating data centres, so people can still look at ads when all the land has sunk beneath the waves.

As always, we bless you with some serious hands-on gadget fondling, which this week focuses on the new iPods launched on Tuesday. Plus, we answer your questions from the forums, and WTF the heck outta you with news of a man planning to jetpack his way across the English Channel.
