Worlds biggest machine

The more you learn the more you realize you don’t know, the more you look at ‘solid’ matter the less solid it looks. Remember how they told us that if a pea representing a Nucleus was placed at the center of a football field, the first electrons are out near the goal posts, that nearly all Matter is just empty space, that’s it’s just some mysterious force that makes it all ‘solid’ and stops us from disappearing into the Earth… ever notice how Scientist look just a little fury, a little absentminded and their always coming up with ‘solutions’, you know, ‘string theory’, ‘dark matter’ and innumerable names for particles and effects? Well Douglas Adams had their number “There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is… another theory which states that this has already happened”.

“The realms of the inconceivably huge and the unimaginably tiny will be united later this year in the countryside near Geneva, when the world’s most massive physics experiment gets under way within a 17-mile ring spanning the French-Swiss border. Inside the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), massive, powerful magnets chilled to a few degrees above absolute zero — colder than outer space — will zip beams of superenergetic protons and lead nuclei in a loop at speeds within a hairsbreadth of the speed of light, then collide them head-on. The energy released will be so vast that the impacts will recreate conditions in the universe as they existed just a fraction of a second after the big bang.

If the LHC performs as expected, it could at last nail down that holy grail of contemporary physics, the Higgs boson — known as the “God particle” because it is thought to lend mass to matter. It may even finally unveil the secret of dark matter, the mysterious entity that makes up 85 percent of the universe — thereby shedding light on as-yet-unexplainable motions of galaxies.”

    I hope they don’t get this experiment wrong and create another Big Bang that explodes out of their structure and blows up the universe!

Got something to say?
