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!

I would be interested to see what would happen inthe event of a nuclear attack on a nato country as the LHC will be used surely as a weapon, the particle accelerator in New york is the reason why the the towers cement disintegrated in mid air, and someone has matched the line from a building on the collider to the two towers and the burnt out cars along two streets as if the beam was split on route and then vaporized both towers levels to make it fall straight down. the LHC can easily take out a city or any missiles in a instant using directed energy from the collider. amazing stuff. shame this world is run by evil people or it could be used as a free enrgy device, im sure tesla could use these machines to make power outage more than whats needed to power the machine. shame. shame on us for allowing hem
Fractal wrongness is the state of being wrong at every conceivable scale of resolution. That is, from a distance, a fractally wrong person's worldview is incorrect; and furthermore, if you zoom in on any small part of that person's worldview, that part is just as wrong as the whole worldview.
The expression appears to date from around October 2001 where it was used by then computer science student Keunwoo Lee in a lexicon of computing. The phrase is a metaphor deriving from the colloquial meaning of a fractal, which refers to an image which is substantially the same at any level of scale—in other words, it is impossible to determine how much the image is zoomed in simply by looking at it.
These huge volumes of data are causing much excitement in the experiments. Physicists are adding new data to their analyses and actively preparing their results. The next goal will be to present the first results from the 2016 harvest at the ICHEP 2016 conference (link is external), which will take place at the start of August in Chicago in the United States.
