The Large Hadron Collider was switched on today
... I'm in my college break so I can't write a massive post on my personal thoughts of this issue yet, but I wanna get a discussion on the multi-billion-pound LHC going as it's been a massive topic/debate among students and teachers offline (mainly in the local high school, with which our sixth-form shares teachers, there's a lot of "Are we going to die?!" going on amongst the pupils).

What are YOUR thoughts on the Large Hadron Collider?

Re: The Large Hadron Collider was switched on today
I think its Ironic that the world may end in the same way it started <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->
I don't really care much. If it kills us all, then it kills us all. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Edit: I just heard that its going to take 30 days for the collision to actually happen. So now people have to wait an extra month to die. <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

There's no actual proof that'll happen though. If there was concrete proof it'd suck the Earth up and crush everybody, I doubt the LHC would have got the funding and the backing of thousands of physicians it did. Or, really, the permission to have it built. <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

I know there are things that can go wrong particularly if some theories are incorrect, but ... we'll just have to wait n' see, eh?

The way its works is that ANY possible outcome could happen. It might make it rain shrimp for 1337 days, we just don't know. It got funding partly because of this randomness, and partly because there is a chance that new energy would be created. If energy was created and not just transformed, then it could solve hundreds of problems across the planet. And that is why they got funding. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Re: The Large Hadron Collider was switched on today
So, basically, we built this huge button, we don't know what it does, but we're pressing it to find out what? Sounds like good fun. If it turns out to be the end of the world, hopefully I'll meet some of you in another life. If it doesn't turn out to be the end of the world, then whatever. Chaos is the spice of life, after all.

Heart of Gold; Although, in this case, once something happens, we can be pretty sure that it'll happen again. If there's an "it" to happen, of course.

Re: The Large Hadron Collider was switched on today
Yay for potential death!

I think we'd be more likely to die around 10/21 when they actually try colliding the atoms, though. ^_^ Cheers for having giant buttons we don't know the purpose of! Can we build an Improbability Drive now?

Re: The Large Hadron Collider was switched on today
We'll find out or not, Lance. It's not up to us little people. And talking with a friend about it, I realized that the main reason that this excites me so much is that the danger exists in the potential. It's not knowing and knowing that no one else knows if this will really destroy us all that makes it so great. I mean, if I knew for sure, I'd be really bitter about it, but I don't know.

I know, the danger in it makes it interesting <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

IMPROBABILITY DRIVE! that was what I was thinking of <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
