Re: FCC

I don't doubt that it can be, or will be able to be, done technically, my concerns would be getting the funding for it and finding a suitable geographically and geologically suitable place for it.

Re: is dark energy dangerous?

can you answer my question? Nope, no one can. Virtually nothing is known about dark matter, its properties or even if it actually exists. It also depends what you mean by dangerous and by "what would happen ?". Dangerous to you ? Maybe, who knows ? Dangerous to the universe, I doubt it very much, b...

Re: RF frequncy of LHC: 400.789 MHz

Well the RFC frequency determines the bucket size, which in turn determines the bunch length that can be effectively captured. You want as long a bucket as possible but there are limitations because a lower frequency means a larger RF cavity which leads to greater challenges with applying supercond...

Re: Hello, I'm joining your world :o)

Now that's what I call hardcore dedication to following your dreams !

You'll find it's a bit quiet here at the moment on account of someone having turned off our favourite awesome machine for a bit, but there's still a few hard core nuts lurking around if you want a chat on the subject.

Re: LHC 2013 scheduel

Looks a bit empty !

Does anyone know if we'll be able to get updates on the progress during LS1 ?
