I really wanted to see tentacles and maybe cthulu coming out of a hole, not another misunderstood natural phenomenon .
Why is gravity so much weaker than the other fundamental forces? A small fridge magnet is enough to create an electromagnetic force greater than the gravitational pull exerted by planet Earth. One possibility is that we don’t feel the full effect of gravity because part of it spreads to extra dimensions. Though it may sound like science fiction, if extra dimensions exist, they could explain why the universe is expanding faster than expected, and why gravity is weaker than the other forces of nature.

It’s full speed ahead for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), as it shatters its own records one after the other, achieving record luminosity, record numbers of bunches and a record beam lifespan. Some 2076 bunches of 120 billion protons are currently circulating in the ring in each direction. At the end of June, beams were maintained in the accelerator for a record 37 consecutive hours! But the main indicator of success for the operators is luminosity, the measurement of the number of potential collisions in a given time period. On 29 June, peak luminosity (the number of potential collisions per second and per surface unit) exceeded 1034cm-2s-1. This number may not mean much to most of us, but it made the LHC operators very proud as it corresponds to the ultimate objective defined by those who originally designed this huge machine!

So, thunderstorms are portals now?

What I wonder is why, in so many of your posts, find it necessary to comment on the nature of future posters who might wander into one of your threads.
I'm sure the super rationalists and materialists will be along shortly to put a very thick wet blanket on any notions that something unusual was REALLY going on at CERN.
This one is mild but some I have come across, like in the political forums, you even stoop to calling names of those sure to come along and disagree with your opinion or premise. It's like you are LOOKING for a fight. It's like you are saying anyone who comes along with a different perspective has already been accounted for and that you totally dismiss them out of hand
I wonder how many ATSer's think there might be something to the story vs those who dismiss it totally, out of hand.

Still that thunder storm looks very intense and is it actually directly above the LHC? If so that is a pretty crazy coincidence.
Is it that far fetched to say they may be related? I think not.
The skies look clear and calm in the surrounding area too.
# Was there ever an explanation for the object that appeared in the CERN tube? I never could find anything, they just said it doesn't move it would bother anything and we can carry on, which seems totally wrong. Nothing in the process of colliding particles hitting unknown object is a problem. #
# People are quick to believe anything they are told even though we all know how things work, especially when dealing with anything useful to the military. #
# The reporting of finding a faster than light particle for instance. Easy to picture a scenario where they did indeed find such a particle but were forced to retract the information from the public. #
I agree that this was a thunderstorm

You lost the debate now say he is insulting? Being right is not insulting you know.
