I can't find anything I deem useful. Other than going really fast. But I'm not going really fast. SO its not useful.

Can anyone explain to me what this actually does? I've looked other places but am still unsure.

There's been plenty of threads about this already. It has the possibility to get the proof for higgs boson... I don't really know a lot about the whole thing so I won't say more. Check out wiki for higgs boson.

It might expand the current model of physics.

Or it might create a black hole.

Or it might do jack shit.

Is it a particle accelerator?
If it is then it's more than useful.

EDIT: yeah, it's a particle accelerator. Basically scientists smash atoms together at speeds close to the speed of light to examine the properties of atomic nuclei stripped of electrons.

New elements, quarks, and in the near future maybe even black holes can be created in particle accelerators. So yeah, it does more than just make things go fast.


I also believe that this is how antimatter is created. Don't quote me on it though.
Signature? What's a signature?

But yeah apparently it could get us the answer to many holes in science, physics or whatever you'd call it.

If it makes a black hole, aren't we all screwed?

No, whilst it is possible that this could happen, the amount or energy required to maintain and expand a black hole simply won't be available. The black hole would form and collapse in less than a blink of an eye.

Now Strangelet particles. That's what you've gotta worry about!

From what I've read, they'd be too small to do anything. You should use the... searchbar and read about it, there's a lot of threads about it.

The black holes it creates (if any) would have a lifespan of less than a second and be smaller than an M&M, so no.

Hopefully :P

They are simply hypothosised. They have never been observed, and all evidence suggests they are just an idea. Particle accelerators are simulating collisions which take place in space all the time. If stranglets exist, the moon should be a ball of stranglets, as it is not protected by the Earth's magnetic field.

The Black Holes will be small enough to disappear by Hawking's radiation. If you point out it has not been proved, well, you would be right. However, it uses exactly the same principals which suggests micro black holes may be created, so if you disregard Hawkings radiation, you shouldn't worry about the micro black holes being produced.

The LHC is trying to find the Higgs Bosson, and hence create a grand unified theory. It can also help probe the origins of the universe, as at the very begining of time (tiny fractions of a second after the Big Bang), the rule of physics as we know them did not exist.

In theory, smaller black holes are more dangerous because they have a higher density; the density and the resulting massive gravitational field is what makes them so dangerous. Although in theory all black holes have an "infinite" density, that doesn't make much sense...

However, nobody knows exactly how large or small black holes are, as they don't even allow light to escape.

Many scientists claim that they are infinitesimally small though.

Pffft, of course it's useless. They're just spending millions of dollars to build a giant particle accelerator that could potentially destroy mankind just for the lulz .

If you really wanna know, google it; there's plenty information.

So is gravity.


However, there is a hell of a lot of evidence for gravity.

All the evidence is against stranglets (e.g. the moon is made of normal matter rather than being stranglets).
