We all know that they exist.

And we 'know' that they're for 'particles'.

But, what would happen if you were to put a human into one of those and accelerated them?

You would melt?

They are made for subatomic particles. What would happen if you were put in a 44 magnum and fired? Try to think and don't stop, even if it hurts. New things can be painful.

I think you're confused about how a particle accelerator works and what it's purpose is.

Your suggestion would be analogous to using a laptop computer to grill a steak.

Probably the two most common "particle accelerators" that you'd be aware of are ...

1. Old cathode ray type TV's
2. The valves/tubes in old electronics

Both of these send electrons from one side of the device to the other, for various purposes.

Now, explain how you'd put a human into one.

But what would happen if you put a human into such a system?

And didn't collide them with anything... or maybe sent them through a field of some sort.

What'd it do?

And yeah, I know they're "supposed" to be for subatomic particles.

And a clothes iron is "supposed" to be for ironing clothes. Yet I can still make a grilled cheese sandwich with one...

Why would someone do this? Curiosity? Stress testing the human body? It's easier to have such a closed system indoors rather than strapping some poor soul onto a rocket outdoors? Cleanup is easier? Obviously, I don't know. Which is why I'm asking all of you.

Put a guy in a 'vehicle' of some sort. Accelerate the vehicle. Like an indoor bobsled.

*edit* And I can use my laptop to grill a steak.

Putting someone in a particle accelerator is the easy part. The hard part is building one of these first:

Ok.

If you were to make one that a human could be put into. I imagine the person would get either baked or completely annihilated.


Pictures or it didn't happen.

Lol, very funny.

But I'm using the term "particle" in a relative sense.

Why would you get cooked or annihilated? People thought that trains went too fast for the human body.

Assuming that people had a gradual acceleration, wouldn't that prevent any problems?

temperature can reach millions of degrees or minus a couple of hundreds, depends on what particles your using, what tests your carrying out. Google a particle accelerator to learn!

But to be honest, end of the day its particle physics, so good luck with that.

There is a reason particle accelerators going in a circle, the particles, travel at near light speed and loop around the track more than a couple times.

I say this because I believe those are the ones you are referring to. Although, as another poster mentioned, there are other kinds of particle accelerators like old cathode ray tubes or like below:

Assuming that the person does not get liquidized from the G Forces involved with acceleration, time will slow down for them compared to us as they approach the speed of light.

Pretty sure they tested the human body's acceleration threshold during the Apollo era in preparation for the launches. They probably would have added more rocket boosters if the astronauts could have withstood it.

Times like this I wish Uncle Fred was still around.

But, we're talking about absolute speed, not their rate of acceleration... there is a difference, right?

And,

If it is taking place in an absolute vacuum, how would the vehicle get super heated? By induction?

I used to have an old p4 laptop that could probably have grilled a steak.


those babies got HOT!

Dunno. Thought we were talking about particle accelerators


You tell me. What are we talking about?!
