Every time they crank that thing up, I get a ringing in my ears.

Wow. As a comparison for reference, the triple bond in N2, which is a very strong chemical bond, is about 10 eV. 8,000,000,000 eV is insane.

I knew I sensed a disturbance in the force.

These colliders go to 8... TeV

We suck....

"The Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) (also nicknamed the Desertron[1]) was a particle accelerator complex under construction in the vicinity of Waxahachie, Texas that was set to be world's largest and most energetic, surpassing the current record held by the Large Hadron Collider. Its planned ring circumference was 87.1 kilometres (54.1 mi) with an energy of 20 TeV per proton."

I was going to come in here to thank subby for not using the moronic "turn it up to eleven" schtick, but I see every other 'tard has.

And no, it didn't create a mini-black hole that swallowed the Earth.


Actually it might have done just that in several billionbillionbillion multiverses.

Remember to always check here whenever there's news from the LHC.

I miss the LHC threads where the modmins would shuffle the times of everyone's posts.

'The Large Hadron Collider' does sound like the name of a 70's progressive-rock band.

"It really is a very small window, which has got smaller and smaller," CERN director-general Rolf Heuer told The Christian Science Monitor, describing physicists' belief that the hunt for the Higgs boson will soon be over.

How do they know that the Higgs isn't at 40 TeV? Or 100?
/Seriously?

From TFA: And no, it didn't create a mini-black hole that swallowed the Earth.

Ah well. Better luck next time, Physicists. ;)

You missed a few zeroes - 8,000,000,000,000 eV.

Baron Harkonnen: How do they know that the Higgs isn't at 40 TeV? Or 100?


Theoretical calculations provided a range of possible values. And they're well within the range of the the LHC can produce. Indeed the lower end values could be discounted to a large degree based on the results from the Tevatron at FermiLab.

I always see it as Large Hardon Collider. I'm wondering how much damage they could really do if they turn the juice up beyond what the machine can handle.

Sort of. It's all the cock she gobbles, so indirectly it's the elusive particle which magically makes said cock have mass.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that has this problem.

"Turn it up, man! "
 
2012-04-06 07:52:44 AM
That's only 0.000001282 Ws. Really, your watch probably has more energy in it keeping time than that collision. Then again, that is only the particle they managed to smash together at 90% or fast than the speed of light.

\remember, that still takes massive amounts of power to even try
\\over 1.21 GW

+1 for the Freedom Rock reference Subby. You too are old and spent too much time in front of the T.V.

i always have to double-read it too. every time i read 'large hardon collider' i imagine them accelerating a couple of gay guys up to significant fractions of the speed of light and slamming them together to make new and unusual types of porn.

/febrile imagination indeed.

the complex is still there, abandoned and barely guarded. you can sneak in and see some really eerie shiat.

A "Freedom Rock" reference in a headline to a link about the Large Hadron Collider? That is close to the definition of "random".

/I keep wanting to type Large Hardon Collider
//which sounds like a porn movie

That's funny, considering you said "Pfft, repeat from yesterday." in tomorrows thread.
