** That's the title of the article. Not my title.

This weeks' doom porn for those who like to be uptight ... and also for those who like to say 'I told you so' when nothing happens ... take note of Wednesday October 16, 2013. We could all be sucked into a hole of nothingness. Okay ATS, we are on 'failure watch' for 10/16/13 .... (and yes, I'm sure nothing will happen)

Are We All Going to Die Next Wednesday?


n an instant - about one-twentieth of a second - the entire Earth would simply vanish from space. Less than two seconds later, the Moon would follow suit. Eight minutes later, the Sun would be ripped apart, followed by the rest of the planets in the solar system and onwards, a wave of destruction caused by a rent in the fabric of space itself, spreading out from our world at the speed of light. Any extra-terrestrials out there would die too, in due course. And there would be nothing technology could do about it.

But why should we now be worrying about such possible causes of Armageddon? The answer is a gargantuan machine - the largest, most expensive scientific experiment in history, the 'Large Hadron Collider', to be turned on next Wednesday.


Now someone tell me .... wasn't this already turned on?
Or am I experiencing a timeline shift?? I thought this was up and running already.

I was thinking the same thing. a quick google search yielded this:



Geneva, 23 November 2009. Today the LHC circulated two beams simultaneously for the first time, allowing the operators to test the synchronization of the beams and giving the experiments their first chance to look for proton-proton collisions.

I seem to be in the same timeline as you. I'm sure I remember it being turned on, and off (due to minor problems) at least a couple of times. And back on again.

Any microscopic singularity created would evaporate almost instantly, you may now return to your normal (and much more likely) end of the world scenarios.



It has been up and then down after being significantly damaged and then up again to discover the Higgs boson. It may just be powering up again (meaning increasing the input power) as it has been incrementally doing since it was built.

Nope.

not all of us but it's a certainty that some of us will die next Wednesday. ... but then again, there are lots of people dieing every Wednesday anyway, so no change there then.

Boy, has that guy got an imagination. Maybe that person thinks that we are part of their dream and they are going to wake up....Hmmm that could be possible I suppose. I'm not loosing any sleep over this prediction. I don't loose any sleep over any prediction unless I am on ATS late at night reading them instead of going to bed.

I think the article is confused. I think they're just adding a new piece to it called a cms detector, which detects blackholes, higgs bosons, other dimensions, and similar nonsense. I think nothing is changing but the capability to detect more stuff.

The LHC has been shut off and back on several times over the years. The first time was due to a major magnetic breach, but it has also been shut off to be upgraded in the amount of power it needs for more powerful collisions.

a thought..
what if they try and harness the singularity and it becomes out of control. yes it may vanish when created. unless its acted upon in some other way...
you know there gonna do something with it. keep doing the colliding until it can be used for something..
you never know Titor could have been real and telling the truth....
(i know, bring on the skeptics and hate)
im thinking with an open mind. you never know what can happen..

Here is some information on the (hadron collider)...it has been used in the past....

en.wikipedia.org...

Quote:

"The LHC went live on 10 September 2008, with proton beams successfully circulated in the main ring of the LHC for the first time,[12] but 9 days later a faulty electrical connection led to the rupture of a liquid helium enclosure, causing both a magnet quench and several tons of helium gas escaping with explosive force. The incident resulted in damage to over 50 superconducting magnets and their mountings, and contamination of the vacuum pipe, and delayed further operations by 14 months.[13][14] On November 20, 2009 proton beams were successfully circulated again,[15][16] with the first recorded proton–proton collisions occurring 3 days later at the injection energy of 450 GeV per beam.[17] On March 30, 2010, the first collisions took place between two 3.5 TeV beams, setting a world record for the highest-energy man-made particle collisions,[18] and the LHC began its planned research program."

I think something could happen in Geneva, Switzerland; but I don't think the entire planet earth would be affected.

Where did you see they upgraded the power/force of the collisions?

There is no spoon or second line.

From the explanation given in the OP it seems that they are talking about the creation of a true vacuum, assuming that physical reality resides in a "false" vacuum(link), and that human technology could be powerful enough to create such a hyper dense point of energy as to knock space and time itself out of its relatively stable state into a theoretical absolutely stable state.

Pure unadulterated human hubris.

Given the age of the universe, it is highly probable that species have both lived billions of years prior to humanity and also have become millions of years more advanced than humans. It would also be almost certain that said species would have experimented at some point with high energy particle collisions as humans are doing now, on scales magnitudes larger than what humans are working on now.

If the universe still exists (which it seems to from my perspective), it is reasonable to assume that, if such a thing as a false vacuum exists, there has been no ultra high energy event in the history of the universe to have knocked us out of that false vacuum state, and most likely never will in the near future (humanitys lifetime).

Thinking that humanity could ever be so literally godlike influential on a truly universal level is, again, pure hubris.

Just to keep this ontopic, yeah, I believe they switched it off for maintenance or something. I just wanted to say, Flyersfan, girl, I just love your new avatar, you've had the pre-Raphaelite lady as long as ive been a member. Cool pic.

Thanks. This was the picture. I've had two positive comments and one request to put the old one back. I should start a topic on the BTS forum and take votes.
Oh and just to keep it on topic ... yes it looks like they switched it off but that it was running before ... but with less power.

I was just about to write a thread about the movie meme See you Next Wednesday!

Of course seeing how that was posted in 2008 maybe just wait for another wednesday?




Well if they can get that All Night Orgy going they should be able to get enough power to open the portal and release whatever it is they want to come through!

Prety weird...


See you Next Wednesday!

Definitely a timeshift problem. So if they turn it on and we get shifted again will it be everyone this time or just some of us. Wonder if Nelson Mandela and Billy Graham will be dead or alive in the next place we land.

Oh yeah and I hope Australia and New Zealand get put back where they're supposed to be.

I just love doom porn.

Ignorance. Nothing pleases people more than being able to put a finger on that which they must fear. Even if they must do it out of ignorance.

archive.org is your friend... the article in question was first posted back in September, 2008. Newspapers are notorious for putting today's date at the top of articles automatically, rather than the publication date.

The LHC was shutdown after the Higgs discovery for an upgrade. They are almost doubling the power of the photon stream(probably not the correct way to say it).

Here is a good article about it:
www.extremetech.com...

Only thing I don't understand... why next wednesday? It is not supposed to be back up until 2015, last I heard.
