Lyn Evans To Start Up The World’s Largest Particle Accelerator, The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), On September 10 2008

by Trendy

On Septembe 10 2008, the world’s largest scientific instrument and particle accelerator will be switched on by Lyn Evans. The instrument is called the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and was built by the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN). The LHC has been built at a cost of 4.4 billion pounds and took about 30 years of planning followed by 10 years to actually build it. The Large Hadron Collider is a 17 mile doughnut shaped tunnel and is the world’s biggest atom smasher. Sub-atomic particles will collide and get smashed in this tunnel at the speed of light. The CERN scientists are hoping that this experiment will lead them to understand the birth of the universe better. The atom smasher will recreate conditions exactly similar to the conditions that prevailed during the Big Bang.

According to the CERN website,

It is a particle accelerator used by physicists to study the smallest known particles – the fundamental building blocks of all things. It will revolutionise our understanding, from the minuscule world deep within atoms to the vastness of the Universe.

Two beams of subatomic particles called ‘hadrons’ – either protons or lead ions – will travel in opposite directions inside the circular accelerator, gaining energy with every lap. Physicists will use the LHC to recreate the conditions just after the Big Bang, by colliding the two beams head-on at very high energy. Teams of physicists from around the world will analyse the particles created in the collisions using special detectors in a number of experiments dedicated to the LHC.

The LHC is located near Geneva on the border of France and Switzerland. The experiment will be conducted at about 100 metres below the ground.

This experiment also has many others from around the world protesting. Some believe this is the start of the end of our planet.

Scientists also hope to shed some light on the invisible material that exists between particles – dubbed “dark matter” as no one knows what it really is – which make up most of the universe.

But a handful of scientists believe that the experiment could create a shower of unstable black holes that could “eat” the planet from within, and they are launching last-ditch efforts to halt it in the courts.

One of them, Otto Rossler, a retired German chemist, said he feared the experiment may create a devastating quasar – a mass of energy fuelled by black holes – inside the earth. Jets emanating from it would grow and catastrophes such as earthquakes and tsunamis would occur at the points they emerged from the earth.

“The weather will change completely, wiping out life, and very soon the whole planet will be eaten in a magnificent scenario – if you could watch it from the moon. A Biblical Armageddon. Even cloud and fire will form, as it says in the Bible.”

If you are still alive and well after September 10, then you have survived and the experiment did not eat us up.
