Some of you might not even be aware of the story I’m about to unfold for y’all. It took place around a week ago, one day before President Barack Obama accepted his “peace” prize, partially because of the work he does exploding the unstable ground in Afghanistan and Iraq for poor people to then plant crops. It’s true! He’s not escalating two wars, he’s helping natives grow crops! Talk about promoting peace. But I digress…this story trumps it.
I was reading an article about three or four days ago about the super collider known as C.E.R.N. on npr.org, and how it was broken for a year and a half. The basic story is that the thing cost about a gagillion dollars, and it super accelerates protons around a 16 mile underground track and has them collide. It was broken for a year and a half. On November 30th, it went back online.
So, you might be thinking this is just a really expensive science project, right? The real question is what does this thing actually do? According to the npr article, it does the following:
The “real thing,” in this case, is the chance to find something new. For decades, physicists have had the same view of the universe. They call it the Standard Model, and it’s just what the name suggests: sturdy, dependable, but a little boring. Scientists want a change, and if their calculations are right, the energy released by the LHC’s collisions should detect something new. That something might be a particle that helps give everything mass. Or maybe dark matter, which makes up much of the universe but hasn’t ever been directly detected. Some people even think that the LHC will discover extra dimensions of space. The truth is that nobody knows.
John Ellis, a theorist at CERN, says whatever is revealed will be very exciting. “It’ll be a little bit like watching somebody appear out of the fog. You’re walking along through the fog, and then somebody comes out of the fog and you start picking out various aspects of them. And eventually you come face to face with the new physics. It’s going to be very exciting.”
But still, I have my doubts. I think it’s far more challenging to our current world view than they lead us to believe in this article. For example, earlier this year, in an article from earlier this year, CERN scientists say that nature will “ripple backward through time” to stop the LHC before it can create the God particle… Link to article from news.com.au
Other scientists have claimed that one of the byproducts of the CERN subatomic particle accelerator is the creation of “mini black holes” as seen here. In fact, some groups tried to shut down C.E.R.N after they admitted to being able to create black holes.
Legal bids to stop CERN atom smasher from ‘destroying the world’
The world’s biggest and most expensive scientific experiment has been hit by a last minute legal challenge, amid claims that the research could bring about the end of the world.
Critics of the Large Hadron Collider – a £4.4 billion machine due to be switched on in ten days time – have lodged a lawsuit at the European Court for Human Rights against the 20 countries, including the UK, that fund the project.
The device is designed to replicate conditions that existed just a fraction of a second after the Big Bang, and its creators hope it will unlock the secrets of how the universe began.
Well folks, the machine is back in operation, and this is what occurred in Norway less than one week ago:
My own assumption is that it is somehow a black hole created by our friends at C.E.R.N.
Think what you want, its the movie of your life and you’re the star. Just know that “The times, they are a changin’…”
