A massive particle physics laboratory under the Swiss/French boarder is nearly set to begin experiments into the "God Particle", Dark Matter and other mysteries of the universe. The experiment involves a machine called the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) which initiates and measures the collision of hydrogen protons at near light speed.

I'm finally getting back to reading Captain Alatriste. I started it a while back, but life got in the way and I had to put it down. My copy got hidden in our last, frantic move (we are still not fully unpacked) and was recently found. I'm looking forward to jumping back in, particularly since I now know the identity of the 2 Englishmen.

The Doctor struggles to build a device that can stop the Sea Devils in their tracks, but he just can't seem to find that somantic imbellisher.
A Sea Devil leader can feel victory in his slimy grasp.
Sgt. Benton attempts to escort The Master back to the Doctor's Laboratory, but discovers he is cut off by the Sea Devil advance.
Forgotten in the greater struggle, the two adversaries on the docks finally manage to destroy each other.
Jo panics when the Sea Devils kill the last of the Unit defenders. She runs through the battle towards the Doctor. The Master takes this as his cue to leave. With the part to his Tardis in his pocket he breaks free from Sgt Benton and evades Sea Devil fire as he flees through the gate. Benton makes a feeble attempt to stop The Master, but pulls his fire for fear of hitting Miss Grant. The Sea Devils have won this day, but the Doctor is still free to resist them tomorrow.
A Sea Devil emerges on the dock and enters a bitter hand to hand struggle with a Unit soldier.
Jo hears a noise and wanders off alone to investigate.
The Sea Devils methodically advance, sweeping away all resistance.
But Unit valiantly struggles to slow the advance, as symbolized by the stalemate on the docks.
"Not so fast" yells Sgt. Benton as he catches The Master cutting his way through the fence. A steadily aimed firearm convinces The Master to cooperate for the time being.
The Master has awoken the Sea Devils and encouraged them to storm a Unit base. While the Doctor and Jo try to find a way to defeat the Sea Devils, The Master surreptitiously searches for the missing component of his tardis.
The Sea Devils March out of the Sea.
The Doctor uses the lab equipment in his Tardis to find a way to defeat the aliens.
Meanwhile, Sgt. Benton and Jo Grant search for The Master.
The Unit troops are quickly overrun by the Sea Devils and are forced to fall back.
