The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator complex, intended to collide opposing beams of protons with very high kinetic energy. Its main purpose is to explore the validity and limitations of the Standard Model, the current theoretical picture for particle physics. It is theorized that the collider will confirm the existence of the Higgs boson, the observation of which could confirm the predictions and missing links in the Standard Model, and could explain how other elementary particles acquire properties such as mass.

The LHC was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), and lies underneath the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland. It is funded by and built in collaboration with over eight thousand physicists from over eighty-five countries as well as hundreds of universities and laboratories. The LHC is operational and is presently in the process of being prepared for collisions. The first beams were circulated through the collider on 10 September 2008, and the first high-energy collisions are planned to take place after the LHC is officially unveiled on 21 October.

Although there have been questions concerning the safety of the Large Hadron Collider in the media and even through the courts, the consensus in the scientific community is that there is no conceivable threat from the LHC particle collisions.

LMAO justice!


and we don't have a year to live.

in 2 weeks they are going to send another particle counter-clockwise to see if it works, then in 2 weeks after that, they are going to do the first colission

I know you guys want the world to end, but, sorry to dissapoint you, it won't happen. The only thing that the LHC will destroy will be a bunch of protons.

Collision of much higher energy that those inside the LHC occur every day, as high energy protons and other hadrons originated in cration/decay of galaxies collide with the upper atmosphere, and this would create black holes in the same way the LHC may, they will then evaporate due to hawkings radiation very quickly.

In fact it would be awesome if they create and measure tiny black holes, as this would be evidence for extra dimension or branes in supersymmetry theory and string theory.

It is generally accepted that the black holes created will have a life span of milliseconds and die out. However some people fear that we do not know enough about black holes and they could infact grow sink as before into the centre of the earth and gradually consume all the earths central core. I must say I have no idea how much scietific evidence there is behind this but probably as much as them dying out very quickly as no one has any real experience in this area.
