LHC research programme gets underway

Geneva, 30 March 2010.

Beams collided at 7 TeV in the LHC at 13:06 CEST, marking the start of the LHC research programme. Particle physicists around the world are looking forward to a potentially rich harvest of new physics as the LHC begins its first long run at an energy three and a half times higher than previously achieved at a particle accelerator.

I'll get the full scoop from the friend who works on this gizmo next time I see him.!

Bear in mind just how much energy was released. Roughly equivalent to a mosquito flying.

If Steven Hawkings thinks he is so smart as to understand the cosmos, what’s keeping him from understanding and conquering the microscopic decease that rendered his body useless and is slowly taking his life away?

Humans, need to climb off their high horse and understand that our real problems are here on this earth where we have been given dominion and not up in the skies, and never forget that…

How dare you!

If it weren't for mega-mega-expensive science and space programmes we wouldn't have non-stick frying pans...... and if it weren't for CERN we wouldn't have the WWW, so just think of life in a world without nicely done fried eggs and CF.

Superglue developed to seal wounds? Bit of an urban legend I fear, esp since it was invented/discovered thirty years earlier.

Well, War can be a great spur to invention and development of technology but would be more comfortable with the examples from WW2 and the great improvements made back then in such areas as Radar, Jet Engines, Programmable Computers etc.
