Big Bang Day: Still here?

I told many of my friends that the world is not going to end as scientists attempt to discover more about the origins of the Universe by recreating the aftermath of the Big Bang 🙂

On a related note no collisions have taken place yet. The first high-energy collisions are planned to take place after the LHC is officially unveiled on 21 October 2008.

BBC has complete details about ‘Big Bang’ experiment.

Read about the LHC in Wikipedia.

    This is the first article I’ve seen that points out that NO COLLISIONS have taken place yet. All they did was power it up. So technically, we won’t know how “safe” the system is until 21 Oct 2008. 😀

    Look thoroughly on BBC website and on CERN as well. They powered LHC up and run test beam. Moreover powering up this machine can’t be described as “only”, it’s extremely complex task – if you really interested look for the aforementioned websites you will find plenty of details including more technical documents.

    Yes, this seems to be a much-ignored point. A few protons have been around the ring in each direction, but these have been at low energy, and beams of protons have not yet been collided into one another.

    So anyone who spent yesterday under the duvet and now feels reassured enough to come out has missed the point!
