You guys see this?

IT HAS been heralded as a monumental creation that will reveal the fundamental nature of the universe, but also as a doomsday machine that could destroy the planet.

The world's biggest instrument - a $9 billion atom-smasher that will recreate conditions not seen since a split second after the big bang 14 billion years ago - will be switched on tomorrow.

Holding their breath will be Australian scientists who have helped design and construct one of the huge detectors in the device that will search for an elusive subatomic particle, dubbed the "God particle".

A physicist from the University of Sydney, Kevin Varvell, said he was excited that after 20 years of planning, the instrument - called the large hadron collider - would begin operation to expore the nature of matter.

"At last we can test some of our ideas about what we are made of. It will help answer some big and deep questions," he said.

Built 100 metres below the Swiss countryside by CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, the collider will fire two beams of particles in opposite directions around a 27-kilometre ring at almost the speed of light.

When the beams collide head on, they will create fireballs and showers of subatomic debris never witnessed before.

Dr Varvell said the impacts could produce man-made mini black holes, reveal that the universe has extra dimensions that are normally curled up, and throw light on the nature of the mysterious dark matter which makes up most of the cosmos.

It should also reveal whether the Higgs boson, or God particle, exists or not.

According to the standard theory of matter, the boson gives everything its mass, and the Australian team helped design the 7000-tonne ATLAS detector in one of the cathedral-sized caverns that will look for it.

Dr Varvell said if the boson was not spotted,"that would tell us something very profound as well".

New theories about the underlying physics of the universe would have to be developed, he said.

Dr Varvell will give a lecture on the collider with Dr Karl Kruszelnicki at the University of Sydney on Wednesday.

Spoolie had an excellent idea - Two Baconators. Shoot two of them at each other in a 27 mile wide ring at the speed of light. See what happens...

I just finished reading that. Pretty interesting junk to say the least.

I have heard something about this thing bringing about the fall of mankind. LoL? Yes.

They shot it today...what was the results? I'm still here so I'm guessing it's not the end yet :lol:

Truth is, they don't really know what will happen. Some of the researchers have said that there is a small possibility that they could create a black hole. The response to this has been, that if one is formed that it would be too small to have any significant impact and that it would basically dissolve because the large gravitational pull of earth would be stronger than a tiny black hole. That is the Hawkins theory. But again it's all speculation at this point. They won't be smashing any protons (or baconators) together for at least a month or so, granted all the testing goes well today and up until that point.

All they are doing today is testing it by sending particles in one direction to see if everything is working properly. The will test it going the other direction soon, and after that they will send particles in both direction near the speed of light and try to make the collide.

I'll tell ya what though....What could be cooler than getting sucked into a black hole? Other than driving something with a 2J in it of course. :wink:

hell yeah baconators crashing... black holes... the fall of mankind..... DOOMSDAY PARTY AT MY HOUSE... i will provide all types of alcohol drugs hookers and enything else you have ever wanted to try upon request. There will also be food and pro football....j/k but seriously. i hope this thing works out and the whole "GOD ATOM" or whatever its called IS found an all the monkey evolution shit will stop being brought up, GOD is real and we are made of dirt point blank.

DAMN THESE MUTHA FUKKA IS CRAZY!!!!!! I happy the way i lived right now. Don't wanna die because some dumbass fukka wanna test his toy out. Don't they know they have billions of live in their hands. y is they tried to play god?????

you cannot accelerate a baconator to the speed of light, in einsteins theory of baconators he cleary states E=BCN8TR squared. any attempt to do this will end the universe in complete protonic reversal..........just like crossing the streams
