I agree with you but I know they won't wait best chance is the machine suffering a failure again. Although that may be a bad thing as well as last I
heard they plan to start at 7 Tev now to make up for lost time.
I'd rather they ramped things up slowly but they seem to eager to get it up to full power as soon as possible and with the possibility of a black
hole a second that concerns me.
I don't buy the whole cosmic rays are the same propaganda they keep using as it only takes one mbh being slower than escape velocity to mess up
everything and I don't like the fact they are relying on Hawking Radiation existing either.
If the extra dimension exists and hawking radiation doesn't there are going to be pumping out an awful lot of mini black holes and even if they all
do escape earth there is still the sun to worry about.
It's quite possible it won't make any of course but the gamble I just can't get my head round it even without black holes it's full of unknowns
and surely not something we should just dive into.
This is very troubling if you ask me because the LHC would create black holes that would embed themselves into this 4th dimension of space instead of
So if we live in 3 dimensions of space and one dimension of time these black holes will evaporate. If we live in 4 dimensions of space and one
dimension of time then these black holes will not evaporate and the end of the world will be upon us because we don't have the technology to control
what we would have started.
So, earth is in the balance based on Hawking Radiation that hasn't been tested. This is crazy to me.
Just wondering how this relates to non-man made black holes?
Fact is we don't even know if they really exist so maybe the collider can't make them.
On the other hand if they do indeed exist, surely they will be too small to gobble up any matter to pose any risk.
I just don't get how smashing sub atomic particles is going to produce anything dangerous considering the earth is constantly being bombarded with
such particles. The only real difference is, these collisions will occur in a confined space so scientists can observe what happens. Am I missing
I wonder how many folks freaked when the other colliders were made.
Yes, this is a larger scale, now get over it, this same reaction they hoping to moniter occurs naturally around Earth all the time.
The idea is to be able tto study it, hopefully to better understand it.
