“When the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)” begins smashing protons together this fall inside its 17-mile (27-kilometer) circumference underground particle racetrack near Geneva, Switzerland, it will usher in a new era not only of physics but also of computing.

Scientific American writer Mark Anderson discusses how the “tsunami of raw data” expected from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN will put the Globus middleware through a “trial by fire”. If project scientists can tame massive, worldwide fields of networked data and computing cycles in particle physics, he asks, might their solutions apply across the Internet—in much the same way that Berners-Lee's specialized HTML invention morphed into the very backbone of modern technological society?
