I want some of what they're smoking.

Before they create a black hole that kills us all, please and thank you.


If we're lucky, the black hole eats the LHC and then collapses.


Would we build another one? Or would we start to focus on food, water and housing for the poor? Sometimes our priorities seem a little off.

We can't afford desalination because it's too expensive but we can afford to smash particles.



The total operating budget of the LHC runs to about $1 billion per year. The Large Hadron Collider was first turned on in August of 2008, then stopped for repairs in September until November 2009. Taking all of those costs into consideration, the total cost of finding the Higgs boson ran about $13.25 billion.

Its not saying another universe, just a different dimension within the one and only. Gravity is the one thing that is transmittable into this other dimension (like the movie "interstellar")

I agree. You'd think that kind of money would be put to better use. I am not a lefty in any regard except when it comes to wasting money on stupid endeavors like this. Do we hairless apes really need to know exactly how the universe operates? No, we don't.

not this whole "Waste of money" bull again

Seriously The war on Terror which achieved basically nothing cost trillions of dollars...

the tax relief that big corporations receive as benefits cost the US tax payer 100s of billions a year
the church being tax exempt looses US tax payers about 50 billion a year...

The poor could be housed easily, the hungry could be fed easily... problem with the system is that no one wants to pay for it when all said and done... everyone looks at the poor and needy and says "Why should we give them hand outs" and you know thats true. But hey its fine, lets just blame scientists for getting money right? yeah makes sense

A few scientists use a few billion a year to actually forward our knowledge and everyone with out a brain looses what ever mind they had left because they cannot possibly accept that science is worthwhile. Yet Ironically the reason, that they are able to become sofa forum warriors is thanks to science...

I agree there is much wasted money on the table.

But I imagine if you were hungry, homeless or without water you would have a different opinion.

It's easy to justify wasted money with a full belly, home and internet access. Of course that doesn't mean any waste is justified.

scientific developments allow us to more easily care for ourselves and the less fortunate
research and development of new ideas should be one of the very last things you consider defunding
and only in extremely dire circumstances

imagine how many people you could care for living in a straw hut with stone tools and a little piece of leather covering your junk (and thats stretching really you wouldnt even have the hut the tools or the leather)

I agree. And we should be investing money in botany, substantial green energy, pharmaceuticals, desalination, and 3d printed houses.

Unless smashing particles is going to benefit one of the above fields I fail to see how smashing particles is scientific development that provides much benefit.

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't see how these experiments move us past huts and stone tools, which is actually more than some of the poorest on the planet have access too.

you dont understand how understanding the fundamental forces at work in the universe that effect literally everything we have ever observed could possibly be beneficial?

(once you understand how it works the next step is making tools that allow you to manipulate that process for your own purposes)

levels of at least 9.5 TeV in six dimensions and 11.9 TeV in 10 dimensions.

..what the hell?

Ok so we figure out anti-gravity, wormholes, stargates, black holes, another dimension, how many people does that feed?

I love technology, but I am more in love with humanity, and the technology already exists to end hunger, water shortages and homelessness. IMO we need to prioritize caring for humanity based on current technology before we worry about what's next.

It's a joint government funded program. So yes it is taxpayer money.



The LHC is a government project jointly funded by CERN member countries, with additional money for experiments coming from CERN and private research organizations. About half of the CERNS's funding comes from Germany, France, and the U.K., while CERN's other 17 member countries contribute the other half of the budget.

a reply to: Isurrender73 Do these scientists have a reason for the need to know how the big bang happened and isn't the big bang a theory. Are they just wanting to prove this theory to be true so they can say the big bang is a fact. As for going into a parallel universe they could just go to like South America and consult with Shamans.
What a waste of money.

possibly a lot

the universe is teaming with resources
we can learn how to better utilize the ones we have


we can learn how particles are formed and in fact create them from their sub particles
some day this technology could allow you to turn a handful of sand into a tasty cheeseburger

but yeah i can see how its not worth the money

If only they learned how to meditate so that they could astral project, then such devices would not need to be constructed. We enter these other dimensions during sleep since we possess the tools necessary to do so; lunar astral body and consciousness. The consciousness can penetrate in these other dimensions and the subtle body allows us to maneuver through those dimensions.

Everyone can do this, so you don't need to waste enormous amounts of money and time to construct a device, you just need to dedicate some time to awaken the consciousness right now, so that it remains aware during those moments when we go there.

How do you figure a theoretical project fills a anyones belly with food? You think this will give technological advancement, looking at a theoretical alter dimension? Innovation gave us tools, main aspect survival, you fit this in the same category? Not sure what fiction books made on someone's imagination would do to help a starving child, maybe you can fill in the blank? Cause I sure cant

Yeah that's highly unlikely, what separates man from an animal is the imagination..
