OH SHIT WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIEEEE!!!!

or:

The Large Hadron Collider: The end of the world








released worldwide September 10th.

LHC!!!!!

This is the general-meaning of the name to help make laymen, ordinary people, and non-scientists understand the naming-convention of the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) in simple language and to understand the aims of the LHC itself.

Large

LHC is quite large, comprising of a circular-tunnel, with multiple loops, stretching for 27 kilometre under the earth between France and Switzerland.

Hadron

Further information: Hadron

This refers to one of the types of particles that make up an atom. These miniature quantas of energy will be propelled by large magnets around the tunnel circuit at the speed of light (approximately) in LHC.

Collider

Collision is oppositely-beaming hadrons will collide or meet, at the same high-speed i.e. speed of light. The resulting explosion will create 105 or 100,000 times more heat than the sun in an area a billion or 109 times smaller than a dust-particle.

so basically this is "the most powerful physics experiment ever built, the Large Hadron Collider will re-create the conditions just after the Big Bang in an attempt to answer fundamental questions of science and the universe itself."

Ahaha.


Nope, i DO hope they got the math part right and there will be no unplanned disruptions, and of course i wake up september 11th with the same general shape i have grown to love :)

i actually like this, this is what science is about, building huge-ass stuff which threatens to blow up the world!

no seriously, perhaps this will shed some more light on the universe, its creation, the how, why, when, where, and maybe, just maybe, whom!

:D
