Actually, its turned on 10th. And its the (L)arge (H)adron (C)ollider, not the LFC.

I think it's a cool thing. Everybody is curious about the creation of the universe, recreating the big bang would be amazing. xD

Sure, we might die. Think of it this way: that'd be a cool way to die. You'll see the secrets of black holes first hand!

Though, keep this in mind. If the world is not ended on Wednesday, then we are still not 'out of the woods' so to speak. On Wednesday they will only shoot the beams throughout the whole 16 some odd mile long LHC, the first collisions don't take place until late October or early November.

But, I still don't think anything is going to happen.

Interesting articles...here we're looking at the same people who invented the Internet. I'm curious to know what they will discover.

Oh, by the way lmao, they're trying to sue CERN and stop them. xD

But think of the bright side, guys. If there's a black hole or something, we don't have to worry about exams or anything ever again!

But that means I'll never reach a 1000 posts ever!



The worst thing is, if a block hole does engulf the world, it would be in a matter of second. So your just sitting thinking of what your gonna do next summer, and then suddenly BAM your gone. That's it, you won't even know what happened. Just BAM

Actually, that would be a great thing. I'd never even know that I had died, and I wouldn't have to feel a thing.

Well that just begs the question, would you rather see your inevitable death coming or not? Me, I would. I would prefer to know I'm about to die, give myself at least a second of time to reflect on my life, say goodbye to my family, etc.

And I have given that to you with this thread.

;)

So even if you think that it may destroy the world, which it won't, now is your time to reflect on your life and say goodbye to your family.

I still find this kind of funny. In the book Demons & Angels by Dan Brown, (prequel to the da vinci code) it talks about the lhc at the start and its the whole reason behind two murders. What happened in the book is that two beams of particles that were speeding at the speed of light hit each other at light speed and recreated teh big bang. Wonder if that will happen here =P. Watch out for teh anti matter bombs :D and yes I believe this to be on topic =P

Well, it's not entirely on topic. And the author of the book simply put that in there to progress the story. Though, the LHC is trying to find particles which may have existed right after The Big Bang.

Pretty good article there, especially the last bit.

"The saner voice of science is shining through, however, as Valerie Jamieson, deputy features editor of New Scientist, explains on her blog.

“Scale the cosmic ray sums up to cover the 100 billion stars in the Milky Way and the 100 billion galaxies in the visible Universe and you find that nature has already made the equivalent of 1,031 LHCs. Or if you like, 10 trillion LHCs are running every second. And we’re still here.” "

Well it says on CNN that they just fired it up a few hours ago. And guess what, WE'RE ALIVE!!!
The first beam is on september 10th.

Today was a trial run of the systems. they haven't collided anything yet.

You know what occured to me? It might be unlikely that we'll kill ourselves with a black hole, but has anyone given thought to the fact that we're recreating the biggest explosion in all of creation?

You're not the first.

I'd love to see the inside of a blackhole, but somehow I doubt it'll ever happen.
