  • Still waiting on a black hole to be born which consumes the planet....

    • @heynow If I worked in the LHC I would download the Half-Life sound track, put it on my mp3 player, and walk around with an orange crowbar all day.

  • My girlfriend did her PhD thesis on whether the Universe was 10 dimensional or 26 dimensional. She concluded 10. A year later she concluded that it was 11 dimensional.

    Eleven what?

    Leave the math for the mathies. It keeps them out of insane asylums.

  • I wander what this setup cost. I there is a God this would be a complete waste. If not, then how will this benefit us. Don't get me wrong, I love science, I am an engineer myself, but spending enormous amounts of money to find out how the universe was formed just is not justifiable in this age. What we do need to spend money on is to find ways to use alternative and sustainable forms of energy and to make electricity cheaper. That will be real useful. If this contraption can help us do that then More..

      Every time science has broken down the 'stuff' of the world into smaller pieces, there have been real, tangible advances in technology that affect everyone.

      We have moved from molecules, to atoms, to proton/neuton/electron, to quarks/leptons/muons, and this is just the next step.

      Why stop now?

      I agree with what you say in principle - just seems to be a massive undertaking to find the smallest particle.

      They did not spend 3 billion euros just to find a particle...

      The LHC @ CERN has several testing stations, all of which have multiple current and future projects. ALICE and ATLAS are the most well known:

      ALICE Collaboration has built a dedicated heavy-ion detector to exploit the unique physics potential of nucleus-nucleus interactions at LHC energies. The aim is to study the physics of strongly interacting matter at extreme energy densities, where the formation of a new phase of ma More..

      Thanks for the update - maybe I should have done a bit of research myself before commenting.

      When I was last reading up, the data analyzed from the test so far are showing a 99.99996% certainty that the Higgs Boson particle exists. They hope to confirm 100% by the end of the year.

  • So now, I have always wanted to know what parts are in a car, so I am going to make it go real fast and then smash it into a wall and look at the pieces left over, that will tell me how it works, what a great idea.

  • I hate to hear about the LHC, Tesla would be rolling in his grave if he knew what scientists today are doing, it's all about fame and proving that Einstein was right or wrong. Nothing good will come out this stupid tube
