i dunno how nobody threw this one in there but
American Nobel prize winning physicist Frank Wilczek of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The largest collider currently operating is in the US. This one is 7 times more powerful but when they turn it on they are only going to be running low level experiments with it.
It takes a long time for this thing to heat up, it won't be up to full power until sometime next year.
I wonder what all these protestors/panicking people will say when wednesday ends and they realize they are still here.
Thats my mothers birthday.
and midnight juggernauts are playing that day !
dammit no !
oh and that Soundgarden video use to scare the living life out of me when i was a kid. Good song though
Apparently the news says that the scientists are getting death threats.
If I was a scientist working on this I would be like, "Death threat? I'm outta here!"...
live broadcast of the experiment here:
quick bullet points for some of u sheepz:
: currently accounts for 73% of the total mass/energy of the universe.... scientists don't know what the fukk it is.. it is only HYPOTHETICAL right now u fukkin toolzz
- Dark Energy
: currently accounts for 22% of the total mass/energy of the universe.... scientists don't know what the fukk it is but only GUESS that it's there because of weird gravitation on visible objects
- Dark Matter
soooo... give me a second.... quick math
73 + 22 = 95
so that means scientists only know whats going on in about 5% of the universe..
and they are using the collider to look for particles they've NEVER seen before
and are only HYPOTHETICAL.....
i mean for fukk sakes...... don't sheep this shit
i liked this part of the article on msn today
"It will be extremely exciting if the LHC did produce black holes," CERN theoretical physicist John Ellis said. "OK, so some people are going to say, 'Black holes? Those big things eating up stars?' No. These are microscopic, tiny little black holes. And they’re extremely unstable. They would disappear almost as soon as they were produced."
Not everyone is convinced that the black holes would disappear. "It doesn't have to be that way," said Walter Wagner, a former radiation safety officer with a law degree who is one of the plaintiffs in the federal lawsuit. Despite a series of reassuring scientific studies, Wagner and others insist that the black holes might not fizzle out, and they fear that the mini-singularities produced by the Large Hadron Collider will fall to the center of the earth, grow larger and swallow more and more of Earth's matter.
