Scientists hope for surprises in Big Bang experiment
 
I guess we won't know if they are wrong lol


GENEVA (Reuters) - Scientists involved in a historic "Big Bang" experiment to begin this week hope it will turn up many surprises about the universe and its origins -- but reject suggestions it will bring the end of the world.

I saw a documentary on this, I think on Nat Geo, it's pretty amazing what they are attempting to do. I think I'll try to catch the web feed on Wednesday.

I bet if a scientist ever does create an experiment that brings down the universe, that scientist will be French like this guy.

I wouldn't worry too much, I'm sure they all stayed at a Holiday Inn.

I just hope that "ray of light from the Indian Ocean" they keep talking about doesn't show up in the Chesapeake Bay or off the coast of VB.....LOL

Oh well, at least I wouldn't have to go into work next Monday.

One of the things they're looking for is a unit of graviton. This particle is thought, in string theory, to possibly transcend different dimensions.

It's interesting to think that we're spending billions of dollars on a big machine that's testing for alternate dimensions and universes. Many of the theories of modern physics are just impossible to grasp.

Blows your mind.

One of my favorite programs of all time. Brian Greene is a little cheesy (but smart as shit), but it's an interesting take on modern physics.

:headbange

absolute coolest thing i have ever seen. Ive been following the hadron collider for about a year now and am very excited... anyone know of any good sites tracking the progress and experiements?

it's gonna be mighty hard for them to re-create the work of god.

String Theory sounds very nice and stuff but it reminds me an awful lot of epicycles and aether.

if you've got a better idea, please share it ;)

i mean, it's not like they came up with a theory and called it a day... they're actively working to prove/disprove it... it really doesn't matter which, cause we get closer to the truth either way.

I thought I heard somewhere that it will take them 10 years or more to be able to decipher anything from this experiment.

That's a long wait. I want answers, and I want them NOW.
