To answer your question, no, I play for the other team.

Back to the thread, after all of the money that they spend I hope that they learn something significant.
He's a regular on Howard Stern and has talked pretty openly about being gay.

Don't catch much Howard Stern these days. I don't even have an HD radio or Sattelite Radio in my car to catch Howard.

It's a series of tubes!

And all along I thought it was more like dumptrucks, but this finally proves it.

The internets FELT slower recently. It's those damn particles being shoved through the tubes that are cluttering things up.

Scientists, I tell ya...they can't just leave the tubes well enough alone. If those particles collide inside the tubes and I lose all my email I'm going to be pissed.

Re: Scientists hope for surprises in Big Bang experiment

Here is an article providing a quick primer of some specific things physicists might be able to glean from the experiments to come.

Re: Scientists hope for surprises in Big Bang experiment

if you think of the developments we've made in nuclear physics, including fusion/fission, with the still very young development of nuclear power, it's important that we understand as much as we can about the subatomic world. I don't know why anyone would be against furthering knowledge in that field.

Also, black holes are cool to talk about, but strangelets would be the coolest bad thing that could happen...

Apparently, aliens are interested in what they are doing also.

Oh dear......

Theory, used in non-technical contexts to mean an untested idea or opinion.

A theory in technical use is a more or less verified or established explanation accounting for known facts or phenomena. ie. The theory of relativity.

Re: Scientists hope for surprises in Big Bang experiment

$10B over 15 years isn't that much. Porn is something like a $4B/yr industry. Not that nuclear physics is more important than pornography, I'm not arguing that, but in the grand scheme of things that's not a lot of $ there are several govt progs that get hundreds of millions at a time during one regeime only to have the program cut under a different administration so 10B is a good price considering its actually yeilding results. Sexy results.
