    Off topic Today started the most expensive and biggest experiment in mankind history

    since we are an obviously technical biased and interested community, I wonder how many have noticed this:

    http://www.geneva.ch/lhc.htm

    http://public.web.cern.ch/public/


    in short: scientists from around the world hope to get new cognitions about the birth of the universe and the big bang theory, by accelerating protons nearly to the speed of light (99,999991%) and collide them (LHC - large hadron collider).

    the experiement is fairly controversial, critics are afraid of unforseen and unpredictable consequences and claim that the earth could be destroyed by creating one ore more black hole due to the colliding process. what do you think?

    The project is pretty cool, and I hope it yields many practical benefits to all. I've heard about the fears and think they are overblown. Most scientists in the know, know it's not going to happen. Heck, if it does though, no one's gonna know

    Not sure but I think NPR updated this morning said the 17 mile tunnel that the particles are sent through will re-create the post impact environment of the universe forming.
    What the heck does that mean? How could anyone have a clue what the environment looked like a nano second after the "birth" of the universe?

    I've been hearing and reading about this for nearly a decade or more. I was even about to apply for its fire brigade but gave up due to the very high requirements. Hopefully this will throw a little light on the universe's birth AND a new source of energy.

    Re: Today started the most expensive and biggest experiment in mankind history

    I equate this to the $500,000 taxpayer grant a university was given to determine if a cows farts are bad for the Ozone, or the $250,000 taxpayer grant the government gave another school for one of the most important social issues plaguing civilization......whether or not Bugs Bunny was homosexual. I could go on and on with the meaningless nonsense money gets sunk into that leads to no information whatsoever benefitting nobody.

    By the way, whatever happened to the global COOLING that was feared and talked about in the 70's that was predicting another ice age for man the way we talk about global WARMING today?

    I think it's a wonderful experiment, and as significant as space exploration.

    We have enquiring minds, we must enquire!
