The LHC and the End Of The World?? Or not....

Posted September 9th, 2008 at 01:32 AM by SuperflyTNT
Hey there all, you may or may not be aware of the groundbreaking achievement that's taking place tomorrow at 8PM GMT in Geneva Switzerland - the firing of the Large Hadiron Collider, a 14 mile or so underground ring that launches gold atoms at one another at 99.9% the speed of light.

The purpose of this undertaking is essentially to learn more about particle physics, quantum mechanics (for the uninitiated, how the smallest of the small building blocks for all matter interact with one another) and to create the Grand Unified Theory, which reconciles the 4 basic principal forces of nature: Gravity, The Strong and Weak Nuclear Force (what keeps atoms together - from spinning apart), and electromagnetism. At this point there are only theories about how these interact with one another on a subatomic level, and the purpose of this grand undertaking is to observe the collisions and 'see what happens'.

The 'scary-ish' part of this is that interesting and unknown things...

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 11:05 AM.
