No problem there pfishy, sorry if any of my posts appear condescending or the such my points have mostly been that every LHC thread are filled with people who truly don't understand anything regarding the field, or the tech, have no interest in really understanding it and yet have very bold things to say regarding the importance of the experiments, the risks (there are none, at least none that people actually correctly talk about)

For some backup info though, I think the LHC is a marvel, its been worth every penny and the technology developed for it so far are already trickling down. It might have been that you caught one of my more sarcastic posts, sorry for that. I am actually a little more knowledgable about the types of tech, how the detectors work, how the physics searches work and in general, the field, because I am actually a PhD in particle physics. I worked in the same offices of people in the ATLAS collaboration (though I was not in ATLAS)

My area of expertise during my PhD in scintillators and photosensors for the T2K experiment in Japan, (long baseline neutrino oscillation) where my work went into calibrating 22,000 sensors... I since switched to the field of Dark Matter where Iv continued to grow into detector development, optimization and construction.

So once again, sorry if iv come over as a bit annoying. I just wish more people where interested in the field in a realistic manner rather than taking a sensational headline and going off on extreme tangents.

I swear that the comment you're replying to was supposed to have been to someone else. Wow, I need to stop staying up so late on these forums. You, I get. From our discussions in other threads I am well aware that your knowledge base is sound on this subject. And as far as sounding preachy or whatever, I can't really blame you. You can only bang your head against the same wall for so long before something gives.
Sorry for the confusion.

So what your saying, is by smashing the smallest particles to ever exist together, a bunch of tiny magic happens and we end up making contact with a parallel universe? yeeeaaaaaa...

I bet they find smaller particles and then they have to build a bigger machine, and that machine will find even smaller particles, and then a bigger machine to find even smaller particles, and a even bigger one to find super small particles...

This is a waste of time and money. Figure out the worlds countless problems first.

Nope, not what I am saying. We are smashing subatomic particles (protons) together at increasingly higher energies to discover what the fundamental particles are. And if you had read the post, you would see that I quite clearly stated that the contact with a parallel universe bit is taken completely out of context and seriously misinterpreted by the reporter. Oh, and particle accelerator technology DOES help solve the problems of the world. Ever known anyone who underwent radiation therapy for cancer? Ever eaten or used any thing recently that must be kept fresh/sterile in its packaging? Ever get mail?
You would probably be shocked at the number of things in your life that are possible or have been improved as a direct result of accelerator technology. And to assume that what the LHC finds will have no benefit to the world or help solve it's problems is ridiculous pessimism, at the very least.

For the above post: the existence of certain particles require extra dimensions. so if they find these predicted particles they will then have good evidence the extra dimensions exist. and based on the particles measured mass and other things verses the theory that predicted them they will know the extent of the extra dimensions.

Also- this has nothing at all to do with any quantum level black holes they may create. Personally I am hoping for microscopic wormholes rather than black holes.

Exactly. And the bit that the reporter from the article in the OP distorted is that this run may be able to prove or disprove a couple of the theories involving gravitons. Which, to be relevant to this run, would have to be the version that almost instantly transits into a higher dimension once freed in our 4. We would have an energy deficiency, possibly a gravitational force, and that's it. An interdimensional Gauge Boson. Sounds like a plot for the next ST Reboot movie...

yes i remember something along those lines but don't remember the article i read it from.

Here's a good one for you. Pretty much wraps up this entire thread in a neat little bow.CERN

Must have happened. Finally got a check from my insurance company that I was wrongfully billed. Miracle, or alternate universe.

This stuff is really cool. They need to keep pushing the limits of science so we can expand our knowledge of the Universe. the LHC has already done more to expand our understanding of the standard model in a few years than we have done in the last 50. It is an exciting time to be alive.

You may have been alone in that desire before you expressed it in that post, but I assure you that is no longer the case.
"LHC discovers portal to dimension made of shrimp. Switzerland opens world's largest all-you-can-eat-buffet."
Best. Science. Headline. Ever

This really deserves a thread of it's own, but i shall post here so i can never be accused of being a Flag and star chaser..

Yeah, That's a Blockbuster waiting to be written. Talk about doom porn..? The Day Large Hardons Collided would either be a box office smash or a complete flop, Sooo many Hardon related innuendos in this post i'm beginning to think the internet has ruined me...

Just the fact that we are smashing together the tiniest ones we can find, and the LHC is located in Europe, ought to be a huge ego boost for Japan.

Thank you so much for linking that story!! Been years since I thought of that story - one of my favorites...So nice to read it again after all this time!

.
Sometimes it seems that these scientists are like a bunch of kids who found a bullet and want to hit it with a hammer to see "what happens". And the truth is, there is that possibility, however remote that they could cause something disastrous to happen, simply because we do not fully understand physics. So lets cross our fingers and toes that at some point they don't unleash some God awful thing on us.
