A leading physicist said:The Large Hadron Collider could soon begin a search for new sub-atomic particles
To read up on this, please view this BBC article. >> clickometry <<The close coupling of the charged Higgs to the top quark means that, if the Higgs boson is heavier than the top quark, it might reveal itself by decaying into a top quark and another particle known as a b-quark.
If the Higgs is lighter, then the top quark might decay into a Higgs and a b-quark.

I've really enjoyed this read but, just for fun, I'm going to find fault with your logic: "Since this would be the first occasion…"
- If you accept the premise that time travel may at least be possible, how do you conclude that this would be "the first occasion"?
The answer to your question "how do I conclude that this would be the first occasion?", is this:The theory of general relativity predicts that if traversable wormholes exist, they could allow time travel. This would be accomplished by accelerating one end of the wormhole to a high velocity relative to the other, and then sometime later bringing it back; relativistic time dilation would result in the accelerated wormhole mouth aging less than the stationary one as seen by an external observer, similar to what is seen in the twin paradox. However, time connects differently through the wormhole than outside it, so that synchronized clocks at each mouth will remain synchronized to someone travelling through the wormhole itself, no matter how the mouths move around. This means that anything which entered the accelerated wormhole mouth would exit the stationary one at a point in time prior to its entry.
(Both quotes in the above panels are taken from this Wiki page > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wormhole)Wormholes connect two points in spacetime, which means that they would in principle allow travel in time, as well as in space. In 1988, Morris, Thorne and Yurtsever worked out explicitly how to convert a wormhole traversing space into one traversing time. However, according to general relativity it would not be possible to use a wormhole to travel back to a time earlier than when the wormhole was first converted into a time machine by accelerating one of its two mouths.
Lovely.Brogan said:So time travel back to the past in the future will only be possible back to the time the first wormhole was created?
So the future end of the wormhole will know where and when the past end will be but what about the first time the wormhole is created?
How do they know where and when the future end will be?
