    I get asked that a lot. Nobody really knows for sure. But we think it is meat on a stick! mmmm good!

    Top 10 ways the Partical Accelerator will blow your mind

    http://dvice.com/archives/2008/09/to...s_the.php#more

    For C Mac D

    1. Might blow up the world? No way. Well, infinitesimal way. But all credible scientists say the collider poses no threat to the world, except to smash old physics theories that are incorrect. Concerns are based on fear of radiation (no danger 328 feet underground), fear of "strangelets," exotic material that can pop up enough gravity to turn the planet into a giant sucking sound (if such strangelets existed, they'd be unstable and decay in a zillionth of a second), and that most ominous one, black holes (no way, they'd be too small and unstable to do any harm). Fear, fear, fear. Get over it. Besides, if this thing destroys the world, it'll be so fast we'll never know what hit us.

    don't know why the worry.. if it did blow then we'd only lose Geneva and the surrounding area, part of Italy and a portion of France.... so no great loss there at all
    ;D
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Here is one of my favorite Physicists, Michio Kaku, discussing the Hadron Particle Collider.

    Fear? I have no fear... I'm pumped to see what this machine can find out about our universe and world around us... hell, it may even be able to unfold the Unifying Theory... something even Einstein couldn't do in his lifetime (or anyone else since).

    We should have completed the SSC south of Dallas.
    They are talking 17miles circumference for LHC, the SSC I believe was going to be over 50 miles in circumference.
    20TeV beams vs. 5TeV beams in the LHC.
    But what's it all mean Basil.
    Basically they had a better chance of detecting the Higgs Boson particle
    (understanding Genesis per Michio) with the SSC than they do with the LHC.
    And it would have been done here.
    Thats what happens when you let a scientist talk to a politician.

    Is there any way we can move it so we lose all of France? ;D
