This result shows that Lorentz symmetry is still maintained when approaching the Planck energy scale.

Well, then. What the blazes is going on?!

What the hell's a petavolt??

It's something that's 1000 times more problematic than a teravolt, but 1000 times less scary than an exavolt.

Needs more quantum.

It's some serious shiat.

There are several theories that suggest that at very high energies Lorentz Symmetry (the apparent fact that the laws of physics remain the same no matter your inertial reference frame, i.e. velocity or energy/mass relative to another frame of reference) should cease to function.  So, you need to check, but that's tough because it is really truly very high energies needed to be checked.  This result pushes up the range which has been checked by quite a bit without finding any evidence of Lorentz Symmetry stopping, but that's still a few orders of magnitude below the range they'd really like to check.

It turns 1.21 microamps into 1.21 gigawatts.

The tasering of an animal rights activist?

Also, it shouldn't have been that difficult for the author to be consistent with their units of measurement.

A few orders of magnitude here, a few orders of magnitude there. Pretty soon we'd be talking about real money.

I guess we're talking about Dyson Sphere energy levels, with solar-system sized accellerators. All to check whether reality holds good.

Someday, someone will poke a bear and the whole thing will come unzipped.

It turns 1.21 microamps into 1.21 gigawatts.

Power = Volts * CurrentPower = 10^15 volts * 1.21*10^-6amps1.21 * 10^9 watts.By George, he's right.
