Magnets,. Really , really big magnets
You need to research and enlighten yourself
Magnets, hmmm . . . .
So we have a trillion watts to produce a fraction of a milliwatt output.
Hmmm . . .
So the missing watts are invvested in magnets.
To move a particle.
(evil grin) this is sounding like the US military's missing trillions of dollars . . . .
So the missing trillions of watts are creating magnetic fields through electromagnets.
That is quite a spectacular magnetic field. No wonder they hurried it underground.
So let's invert the experiment and look not at the little subatomic particle, but at the electromagnetic field that is created.. it would be a toroid a few miles across?
A giant torroidal coil . . . .
Hmmm . . .
Faster-than-light (also superluminal or FTL) communication and travel are the conjectural propagation of information or matter faster than the speed of light. The special theory of relativity implies that only particles with zero rest mass may travel at the speed of light
Nothing's faster than the speed of light. Except the speed of dark. That might sound like the tagline of a grim and gritty movie that's trying way too hard, but it also happens to be true.....
This is a little hard to wrap your head around, but shadows can move faster than the speed of light, even though nothing can move faster than the speed of light. In a second, we'll explain how exactly that's possible without breaking the most fundamental law of physics. But first, this thought experiment might make things clearer.
Imagine you have a light that's powerful enough to reach the planet Jupiter. Imagine also that it casts that beam in a cone that's broad enough to cover the entire diameter of the planet. When you pass your finger over the lens, the shadow will cross the entire diameter of the planet — a distance of 86,881 miles (139,821 kilometers).
The speed of light is 186,000 miles per second (299,338 kilometers per second). So if it takes you less than half a second to move your hand that distance, then that shadow will have "broken" the speed of light.
The arrogance of science, they say "Can we do this?" when it should be "Should we do this?"
It is science's own fault that they are distrusted.

Psst - hey AthlonSavage - i heard CERN are using the LHC to spin particles are near the speed of light in order to create the universe's best Swiss Cheese. Ssh! Don't tell anyone. This is a super secret fact that only people who have vibrated to the 9th dimension know about.
New rumour in ATS in 3....2....1....
The LHC is the crown jewel of CERN, the European particle physics laboratory that was founded after World War II as a way to reunite and rebuild science in war-torn Europe. Now scientists from six continents and 100 countries conduct experiments there.

Where people cannot grasp the basics of the science they tend to roll off down the road of silliness and their imagination goes out of control.
