"The collisions could provide the first experimental evidence for the Higgs boson, which many scientists believe explains the origin of mass. Other researchers are looking for evidence of Supersymmetry, the idea that every particle in the Universe has a “companion” particle.
Last week, Holger Bech Nielsen, of the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, and Masao Ninomiya, of the Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics in Kyoto, suggested that the breakdowns at the collider could be caused by the Higgs boson itself.
They said that the boson could theoretically ripple backwards through time to destroy whatever had created it in the first place. This could also cause the accelerator to malfunction, they said."
Yes, I imagine it could
