Largest particle collider conducts successful test


ap.google.com

GENEVA (AP) — The world's largest particle collider successfully completed its first major test by firing a beam of protons all the way around a 17-mile (27-kilometer) tunnel Wednesday in what scientists hope is the next great step to understanding the makeup of the universe.

After a series of trial runs, two white dots flashed on a computer screen at 10:36 a.m. (0836 GMT) indicating that the protons had traveled the full length of the US$3.8 billion Large Hadron Collider.

Yes! now I can add "a black hole from the particle collider ate my homework"

A new dwan of discovery has just risen!!

i think you will be better off saying that all the atoms in your homework book demeterialised due to a freak physics accident and remeterialised somewhere else. (i actualy read somewhere that it woudl be possible, but like 1 billion to 1 chance, im gonna use it if i ever comit a crime )

its a great day for science
i cant wait till they turn up the juice and start smashing those protons,.

They didn't collide anything today, they just shot a beam, but still good news
Sometime in October they will collide something, last night they had an information show on the LHC on the History Channel

I can't help it, I have to share this comment posted in response to this article...

Simple risk versus reward. Let's plug in the variables shall we? On one side we have the potential to unlock a new understanding of physics and our universe - at the very least expand our current knowledge base. On the other, France gets sucked into a black hole. Hmm...

This is Houston, We're a Go. Godspeed.
