CERN rumbles on

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by bullet_catcher, Mar 30, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The CERN project is reportedly running its fastest beams today. I for one am very interested in this, but the official website gives precious few details. I was of the impression from the press a few weeks ago that the project was to be closed down for a year or so, so this report came as a surprise. Is the CERN Project overcoming difficulties with a sense of urgency? Is it a pit full of seething passionate back-stabbing scientists with no clear strategy? Or are the press just making it up as they go along?

    (The report says the experiment will be run some time after midnight LA time, which is 7 hours behind UK time)

    Yours, Confused of Arrse.
     
  2. They are running 7TeV collisions, 3.5TeV per beam.

    Then they are shutting down to upgrade for the full power collisions at 14TeV.

    Try here for more geekness than you thought possible.

    14TeV ...bloody nora...which country they sapping that power from?
     
  4. Can you warm up your pies on this Hardon collider?
     
  5. No. But you can see what the universe looked like at the very moment after your pie was colided with another pie or some such shit!

    Interestingly though, the hardon collider, is directly responsible for shit loads of free porn - so it has been invaluable and well worth the billions spent on it!
     
  6. It would seem that they have been successful at the 7 TeV level with some muon candidates already identified.

    Which is an outstanding achievement. Well done CERN.

    They will turn the big knob up to 11, for a shot at 14 TeV in 18 months time.

    If we are really lucky, we will get a flashforward. :)
     
  8. Wasn't it a big fcuk off black hole that they were going to create and end all life!!
     
  9. I bet when the media aren't there the boffins have particle races etc. Oh and if there has been one meeting at CERN where they haven't called it the Large Hardon collider, then I'm a dutchman.
     
  10. They should ahve fired McBalloon and Meddlesome round one way, 2-Sh*ggs and B'liar around the other way..... to see what happens to the representatives of New Labour when they all meld together into an amorphous mass of sh*te.... :cyclopsani:

    It becomes New Labour, obviously.
     
  12. if you're a dutchman, do we call you Hertz-van-Rental? ;)
     
  13. Well lets hope they find the elusive Higgs Bosun squiggly ampy thingy so that I don't have to spend any more sleepless nights worrying about it.

    I am led to believe that when they find the HBSAT, we will have the answers to flying saucers, ghosts, the origin of the universe, string theory, why wimmin cant drive, why my GPS batteries run down just as I am plotting a waypoint of particular importance, whether or not quarks make a noise like ducks and what humorous geek so named WIMPS. Oh and gravity. And what have you. Lets hope a pigeon doesn't drop a pie on it and **** it.
     
  14. You're just being silly now, aren't you? The other stuff, OK (and I speak here as a physicist), but if you think any experiment will ever explain women ...
