Today I was reading a CNN.com news article on the largest scientific experiment in history, an atom collider being built in Europe, when I encountered the following quote:
The machine, which has been called the largest scientific experiment in history, isn’t expected to begin test runs until August, and ramping up to full power could take months. But once it is working, it is expected to produce some startling findings. (source)
If the findings are expected, how will they be startling?
I get what the reporter was trying to say, but I thought the line was humorous, and thought you might enjoy it too.
