Re: ChERNobyl

In layman terms: Think of a candle that can light up the room. The hazard with a candle is that it can set a room on fire when you tip it over … but its heat is not able to burn and destroy the smallest elements on Earth: Electrons and Protons. Now the LHC is also a kind of candle, just a very tiny ...

Re: ChERNobyl

Howdy Charms, Sad to hear that you’ve had a rough time family-wise. What I’m up to is still trying to build a simulator that is a kind of TOE, and prove that the LHC is some dangerous monkey business. It’s a simple idea but quite complex to program, but maybe just maybe I’ll get it to work next year...

Re: ChERNobyl

Hi Charms! Yup yup, I’m still around, almost my 10 year anniversary! The series is okay, it’s is a bit cliché and simplistic at times but it has some cool moments. I binge watched it and enjoyed it. Memorable. : ) Haha, no flat Earth for me, I can’t believe those people really exist. I’m guessing th...

Howdy, Anyone else seen the tv series Chernobyl? :scared-shocked: https://youtu.be/s9APLXM9Ei8 A great example how business and personal ambition overrules commonsense. With the unthinkable as a result. 84BBA6B2-AF9A-4C08-B0C2-92827BA602EF.jpeg This was still nuclear and containable, when you go sub...

Re: Black hole

You mean like the third image on this page or what ? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-47873592 Yes, and even more like the image in the video, so we get some more 'relational' info.

Black hole

Hi,

Anyone else wondering why they’re not showing a broader image of this ‘new’ black hole?

Re: Star Trek Disco

Seems like it is missing the point of a chain reaction, where you heat something up to the point that it starts to self combust. Like this meteor that reaches a specific temperature and suddenly splatters to pieces. https://youtu.be/dwlUDwTE-OI Some goes for the LHC if you start to illuminate matter...

Re: FCC

Can you give an example of: “What people do in the name of science isn't the same as science.”

Thanks in advance!

Re: FCC

What people do in the name of science isn't the same as science. What people do in the name of religion isn't the same as religion. People abuse labels and causes in their own interests, the problem is people, not the thing they are misusing. Mh, the bad things that people do in the name of science...

Science isn’t holy and what people do in the name of ‘science’ is surely not ‘always justified’.

Science itself is indifferent, the uses go in all directions from the very good down to absolute horror.

Re: FCC

Well resurrecting this topic as we have all seen the FCC Conceptual Design Report (CDR) release today. … Is it really worth spending 10bn€ to confirm that the universally recognised as incomplete Standard Model does still work at 100Tev ? Sure some new physic might appear at those energy level but ...

Oh, I just read this post just now, overlooked it somehow. Very sad ‘news’. I had a great time and lots of interactions with him. My condolences to his family and friends. Nice of his son to drop us a line. —- Charms, also sorry to hear about your husband parents, Danny aka StrangeQ if I’m correct. ...
