The CERN project and experiment
#1
Hi everybody!

Did you know that CERN was developing the biggest loboratory on earth?

Well this is not that important, in comparison with the experiment that its scientists are going to conduct tomorrow. They are going to simulate the creation of the universe by coliding to particles at a very, very high speed. The tunnel is buit underground with a lengh of 27 KM.

Some speculations say that this could cause a global catastroph. What is your thought about this?

Here is the project's web site:

to understand how huge is this project, that was developed exclusivley underground see this photo:

here is a demonstration of the worst scenario. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64JxuLOXhCk">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64JxuLOXhCk</a><!-- m -->

I hope this show is not what 16 billion $ of spending is worth.

The device broke up and the neutron crush is postponed to spring, 2009. I can't understand how the experts' opinion got divided into two parts: pesimists and optimists. This is science and I believe science requires exactness and not opinions.

Here is a scheme in order to understand how sophisticated the project is

OMG, did you said $16 billion US Dollars for this CERN project? WoW, I hoped it does work in the end, and if it wasn't, then it didn't work at all!

Tell me please, you want it to "work", but, what exactly do you mean by saying that? Should it start giving birth to small black holes, or what? Or maybe the protons should simply disappear when crushed?

Scientists believe that when the protons will crush, the outcome will last a few milliseconds, after which they will disappear. These milliseconds will be filmed and analyzed by thousands cameras and equipment installed in the collaider.

A brief animation that explains the LHC in super simple terms:

Before crushing, the protons should reach the speed of the light, that is about 300,000 km/h. This will take a lot of time. The protons started to gain speed, when the LHC broke.

very nice. I think if we talk here about even 1% of uncertainty, that is because we are talking about the life of 6 billion people, and this ca not be the put them under risk.

As I understand, the project was financed not from the EU budget, it was financed by private investors, so I wonder what would be their interest to gain from this project?
