Re: FOOD FOR SCARY THOUGHTS!

I'd read about this a while ago. Bit of a nasty risk if its true: This might lead to great discoveries, but it might just wipe us all out of existence.

If there's a realistic element of doubt, I'd rather they left it turned off! All sounds like scaremongering to me though.

Re: FOOD FOR SCARY THOUGHTS!

I am a little slow on these things. I still don't understand what this machine does. Is it going to provide a new energy source for us, or alternative fuel to run our cars on? I just don't see the point.

Re: FOOD FOR SCARY THOUGHTS!

no its to study how protons react with each other in hopes of discovering new technologies that are lightyears away

even with the posibility of manipulating and processing atoms at a atomic size in hopes of creating new materials that are possible to co-exist but not found on earth

thats a peice of my understanding of it

Re: FOOD FOR SCARY THOUGHTS!

They need to finish that, it could usher in a whole new science, discover new form of energy and physics. Transistors were the biggest discovery of the 20th century, where electricity was the previous century, this machine could bring us to something new and just as big. There was one point is our lives that humans thought that if we traveled more than 10 miles an hour we wouldn't be able to breath, we need to grow up and try new things or continue to think like that. Turn this machine on.

I also want to make another note to that people thought the same thing in earlier collider experiments when experiments with partial/anti-partial collisions were first theorized, oh, look, were still here

Re: FOOD FOR SCARY THOUGHTS!

That's weird. I was reading this acticle, and a segment about it came on on the history channel. They're saying it is completely safe.

Re: FOOD FOR SCARY THOUGHTS!

Okay, this just goes to show you how weird and irrational we humans can be. . . so I'm reading this article about how an upcoming experiment might create a black hole that would swallow the earth, and then it mentions how CERN (the experimenter) hasn't filed an environmental impact statement!

I mean, do you catch the absurdity? How would you write that? " . . . side effects might include the end of all life as we know it." LOL.

Re: FOOD FOR SCARY THOUGHTS!

The guy who filed a lawsuit specializes in radiology. As in, taking x-ray shots of people's bones and stuff. There's no way he really understands what he's talking about here. This lawsuit should be thrown out by the first judge who hears it.

Re: FOOD FOR SCARY THOUGHTS!

Well, if he's an M.D. radiologist, then he does have to have a pretty good understanding of atomic/nuclear physics, since he deals with it on a daily basis to do his job. On the other hand, it's probably not to the same level as the egghead PhD's running the accelerator. Fire it up, I say.

Re: FOOD FOR SCARY THOUGHTS!

Not wanting to be controversial or anything but this guy filing the lawsuit is nothing short of a conspiracy theorist.
Also I don't see how a law suit filed in Hawaii can have any bearing on a scientific facility built in Switzerland.

The ultimate goal for this is to help us come up with a unified theory that can bridge the gap between quantum mechanics and general relativity.

I'm personally more excited about this

If ITER and the subsequent DEMO reactor

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DEMO

work as expected we'll have access to much much cleaner and safer way of energy production by 2050 also by then I'm hoping fuel cells and ultra efficient batteries and ultra efficient electric motors would have replaced most internal combustion engines so we can finally make the jump from fossil fuels into cleaner energy production.
