Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

Magnetic, if you really want this thing stopped, you're begging/pleading to the wrong people. If you really want to accomplish your goal, however far-fetched it may be, seek higher authority..don't ask regular users with no authority over it to somehow assume authority.. it just wont happen. Also, t...

Re: *** COLLISION ALERT ***

Re: What does ... mean?

The most i can find on the BRAN is that it's what they call a "Luminometer", so you were correct in your assessment that it has something to do with measuring Luminosity :) **EDIT: Found the more precise answer. :) http://ab-dep-bi-pm.web.cern.ch/ab-dep-bi-pm/?n=Activities.BRAN BRAN=Beam RAte of Neu...

Re: Hi, I am a gluon!

Well, personally, i started off in the Scientificconcerns.com forum (Formerly LHCconcerns.com) back in 2008, a month or so before they switched it on for the first time. I was afraid back then; i'm not now. :D

Re: *** Breaking news ****

There seem to be insanely high powered and dense beams of cosmic rays that come from galaxy class black holes at the center of all galaxies. These beams at times point right at other galaxies. If the insanely high powered collisions that resulted created black holes then i think this effect would h...

Re: *** Breaking news ****

iiii had no idea. ._. though i do believe in the "cosmic rays" argument and such. i do not think the LHC will be the end of the world or anything like that. i used to, but when i realized, it's silly to think that something less than the power of a natural occurrence could be the cause... i'll admit...
