Well, I'm just saying.
They could do like Japan does, and run Fiber Optics all around the country to everyone's home for free.

There are a lot of things they are going to use the LHC for. To see the Bing Bang thing, of course. But also, when they smash the atoms together, they are also trying to see what comes out. Yes, there are things that make up atoms. They are called quarks, they are the smallest known unit of matter, and the LHC experiments will help them study the quarks. I don't know exactly what they are trying to find out about them, but whatever it is, it should be really freakin' cool if it all goes according to plan.

For instance, the LHC has the ability to get dark matter, or antimatter as some people call it. A half a gram of antimatter is enough to cause Hiroshima again...if we can somehow harness that, think of the possibilities of energy and what not.

Not to mention "Internet 2" is underway as well, and the only way that'll work is if the LHC can harness the needed electricity.
Anti-matter and dark matter are two entirely different things....

Edit: you guys are freaking out about this for no reason at all. The odds that it will create a black hole is EXTREMELY small and even if it did, the most likely scenario is that it will be an unstable black hole and deteriorate before it can gain enough mass to become stable. That website didnt work, but i doubt it was correct anyway. The only thing they are trying to figure out is whether or not the higgs-boson particle exists or not. The higgs-boson is the last particle that is predicted from the big-bang that we have not discovered because it is extremely heavy and broke down soon after the big-bang. If they do not detect the higgs-boson then the big-bang theory is not correct and we have to start from scratch.

double edit: Let me know if you want me to explain anti-matter, its pretty cool.

Please do, I wasn't aware they were different.

Anti-matter is a particle with the oppisite spin of regular matter. When anit-matter encounters matter, they cancel each other out and turn into pure energy. We really have no idea what dark matter is, only that it makes up about 25% of our universe, while visibe matter makes up 5% and dark energy makes up the other 70%. We can see anti-matter, and we can interact with it. We have never seen dark matter because as far as we know, it does not reflect any type of light. The only reason we theorize that dark matter exists is because of the gravitational affects it has on our universe. We have never seen or interacted with dark matter, we have seen and interacted with anti-matter.

This all sounds really scary. I admit I was a little freaked out when I first heard that it could potentially make a black hole. But, I've read some things about it and knowing that a black hole will probably not be the effect of any of these experiments, we are all going to be fine.

Idk what these ppl were thinkin when they made this, this thing just has dumbass writtin all over it

Edit: hasnt internet 2 been around for awhile, i remeber hearing about it about 3 years ago and i think it was like a straight connection from England to France that could send shit fast as hell over that straight internet connection. Idk for sure?
And if antimatter/darkmatter can do that why would we want it, so that more massive bombs are on this earth ready to go off and just destroye us all?

I really don't watch much TV and haven't been on the computer lately so this is really interesting to me. I had no idea this was even in development let alone about a month away from testing.

I'm guessing if they prove the big bang theory to be true then most religions will be thrown out the window and we will have mass suicides on our hands?

The world reacted the same way to the Atom bomb research and development... with right. The LHC is basically the strongest force that man has ever created. So part of me wants to say "No worries, they know what they are doing". While the other part of me just thinks of how some of the scientists that worked on the atom bomb confessed, years later, to how close they were to knocking a chunk of the earth into space.

I've been following the LHC for almost a year now. Since i first read about it. I've learned most about it on AboveTopSecret.com. I know some scientists believe it's the main "ingredient" to time travel development.... further down the road. Not exactly what I believe, but hell, ya never know. Nice topic NoK, glad to find some other H3F members with my interests.
