    G'day from the land of ozzzzzzzzzzz


    Hadron Collider CERN

    To find the smallest sub-atomic particle. This will open doors to many issues.

    This is quite interesting

    It is just amazing that these mysteries of matter and energy are going to be experimented by such magnitude. I just canít wait to see the results of the many experiments to come using the Large Hadron Collider. Maybe quarks and leptons arenít the basic composition of matter and there is another thing that makes up quarks and leptons! Matter can be converted into energy so what says energy cannot be converted into matter? If matter is made by energy wouldnít that mean, at some point, energy is the basic component of matter? A lot of amazing results may come from experimenting with the LHC, some of these results might even change our everyday lives. Either way I just couldnít imagine the LHC not making a significant difference to science.

    What's even more impressive in my opinion is that not only are we asking these questions, but we are also willing to put our money where our mouth is and collectively attempt to answer them.

    Cat I assume that you are from England.

    Too right mate.

    Better than WAR. You would think after hundreds of WARS we would be sick of them.

    The National Academies.
    Physics Milestone: Large Hadron Collider Activated
    http://nationalacademies.org/headlines/20090916.html

    The Large Hadron Collider is currently running six experiments, and some of the results that scientists hope for include identification of the particle that makes up dark matter; signs of the existence of extra dimensions; and evidence of a particle known as the Higgs boson, which is responsible for generating the masses of the particles in the Standard Model.

    Two reports from the National Academies discuss the scientific promise of particle accelerators. Connecting Quarks With the Cosmos: Eleven Science Questions for the New Century describes the importance of technologies like particle accelerators, which can provide answers to the many questions surrounding the creation of the universe. Revealing the Hidden Nature of Space and Time: Charting the Course for Elementary Particle Physics recommends that the United States assume a leadership position in the design, management, and funding of the International Linear Collider, an electron-proton particle accelerator currently in technical design phase, which will work in tandem with the Large Hadron Collider, a proton-proton collider.
