Re: Portal changes

WHY is there now, Aug 2015, no semi-real-time comment or commentary in this Forum on CERN operations ? Nothing from any knowledgeable insider on LHC Daily Meetings, cameras now hidden behind logins, nothing from the experiments, no occasional roving video, nothing for modestly knowledgeable outside...

Re: 2014 machine commissioning and 2015 start up

Thank you for the information, Tau. Can you explain something? If 25 ns bunch separation does not allow you to have more bunches, then what does it achieve? From where I'm sitting it seems likely that 25 ns will be harder, so I assume there is an up-side... It does allow more bunches but with less ...

Re: Dark Matter

I'm not quite sure I get your point, but the current theories suggest that dark matter interacts only through gravity.

Re: Heavy Ion Collisions safety

Well your comparison with smoking doesn't really work. In the early days no one really thought smoking was especially dangerous. Yes there were a few who thought ill of it - King James I for instance - "A custome lothsome to the eye, hatefull to the Nose, harmefull to the braine, dangerous to the Lu...

Re: Heavy Ion Collisions safety

Dear DarkDaniel, dear people No bogus at all about the 1`148 TeV, LHCsafetyreviev is serious and so its papers. Please search 1.15 PeV, which is 1`150 TeV (more exactly is 1`148 TeV) here: https://cds.cern.ch/record/1129806/files/jinst8_08_s08001.pdf Usually, only the energy per nucleon is mentione...

Re: LHC as a mega-project!

This book - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Large-Hadron-Collider-Lyndon-Evans/dp/143980401X/ is awesome, although its rather expensive. It goes into a lot of detail about how the machine was built and how it works. It all predates that actual running of the machine but I found it an amazing read. Each chap...

you're on a roll (with minor bickering about scansion) I have amended one of them to account for this, but in response to your point I present my all time favourite limerick - There was a young bard of Japan, Who's poetry never would scan, When told it was so, he replied "Yes I know "But I always t...

"Mein Collider ist schnell und vill Feuer"
Said that excellent Herr Doctor Heuer
But he made a black hole
And it swallowed us whole
And now he's in need of a lawyer

There was a young girl called Charm Quark
Who found that her choices were stark
She was told to decay
Without further delay
But she muttered "Sod that for a lark"

Re: LHC Limericks

There was a young doctor who said "Will it hurt if I stick in my head ?" So the silly young twit Went ahead and did it Now we don't know 'cos he's dead There once were some science big wigs Who said "We must search for the Higgs" So they built a machine That was wholly supreme And it worked so they'...
