my god, it’s full of stars!
Is that the LHC? or are you just pleased to see me.
You’re joking, but someone might be wondering if “large hadrons” are something real.
And those someones are why it was built in Europe and not North America.
In the United States, they mostly also believe in an imaginary friend who can help them with their problems — using magic! No large hadrons required.
The end of the world never looked so beautiful.
He can do magic, magic, magic!
Magic a rabbit, eight feet high
zuzu, you know what you did was naughty. go stand in the corner and think about it.
Hadron thisaway, Hadron thataway
Hadron thisaway, My oh my
From Emily LaTella:
What’s so scientific about a Large Hardon Collider? So what if the Hardons gather speed for 17 miles before Colliding, the end result is always the same. I think Small Hardon Colliders deserve an equal share of discussion.
OH! Large Hadron Collider! NEVER MIND!
Jings, reminds me of Event Horizon… eek!
Smashing Proton for Fun and Profit
p.s. Is this where Danny Boyle filmed Sunshine?
and what about the
large hamster collider?
I would pay a lot to just push the button and tell everyone I simulated the big bang this morning. And it not be, you know, my usual masturbation joke.
Zuzu: They already have one, below New York (City?), don’t they? Not sure if it’s a hadron collider tho.
This thing is going to become the coldest place in the universe (according to BCC News)
Sure looks like water in the center. Are you sure this isn’t a StarGate?
It is f*cking gorgeous
By the way, The Economist, issue August 2nd has a story covering the theories phyisicists might try to prove with it.
Large Hadron Collider is Large
I can’t see the large hadrons in that picture. If they’re so “large”, why can’t we see them?
You’re joking, but someone might be wondering if “large hadrons” are something real. No. The “large” is modifying “hadron collider”, not “hadron”.
Very nice pictures. Almost gave me a hadron.
What is that dark mushy thing at the end of the tunnel? The black hole that will suck us? Or simply an Old One?
They made it really big so they wouldn’t have to sweep all the particles out as often.
Have you heard of the Tevatron, or does your anti-US prejudice somehow prevent you from having knowledge of things that contradict your view?
