Results from the Large Hadron Collider show that a "bump" in the machine's data, previously rumoured to represent a new particle, has gone away.
The discovery of new particles, which could trigger a paradigm shift in physics, may still be years away. All the latest LHC results are being discussed at a conference in Chicago.
David Charlton of Birmingham University, leader of the Atlas experiment at the LHC, told BBC News that everyone working on the project was disappointed.
"There was a lot of excitement when we started to collect data. But in the [latest results] we see no sign of a bump, there's nothing. "It is a pity because it would have been a really fantastic thing if there had been a new particle."
So destroying things makes humans God? Is God to you destruction?
CERN is nothing but a doomed failure, you place hope in something that is unnatural..
This article explains that the data that seemed to indicate the possibility of a 'new' particle is no more; apparently not present in the previous data now.
Due to this, the scientists at the LHC have suspended operations - they had intended to ramp up power with this cycle.
Do you think LHC scientists are now experiencing the Mandela Effect - being sure of data that doesn't exist now? If so, the irony is astounding.
