Large Hadron Collider has first collisions

Posted: 04:55 PM ET

Alarmists take note: The planet is intact after particles began smashing into each other at the Large Hadron Collider today.

For the first time, the $10 billion machine circulated two proton beams simultaneously in its 17-mile tunnel underneath the border between France and Switzerland.

This is a major step toward finding the answers to fundamental physics questions about the nature of matter in the universe, and how the world as we know it began.

“The events so far mark the start of the second half of this incredible voyage of discovery of the secrets of nature,” said Tejinder Virdee, spokesperson for the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment, in a statement.

The particle collisions are finally happening despite discredited theories that the accelerator could produce a black hole that could swallow the universe, and that it is being sabotaged from the future. Read more about these theories

The project appears to have rebounded from a substantial setback in September 2008. Just nine days after it started up, one of the 25,000 joints that connect magnets in the LHC came loose, and the resulting current melted or burned some important components of the machine, said Steve Myers, director of accelerators at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).

The collider has drawn thousands of physicists from around the world together in a collaborative search for never-before-seen particles and new properties of nature. These particles include the Higgs boson, which theoretically gives mass to matter.

Today's collisions are relatively low-energy; the next step is to get particles colliding at higher energies than ever before. The accelerator should reach an energy of 1.2 TeV (teraelectronvolts, or a million million electronvolts) per beam by Christmas if all goes well, CERN said.

Read more about the collider going back online.

Religions were created by humans, not by GOD or the creator. In every religious texts there are anomalies. Texts say man was created then woman, then all the other creatures. But now we know that it was'nt like this. Humans came into extistence through evolution. Again religious texts never mentioned other planetary systems of even milk way; the reason is simple. who ever wrote these books didn't know these existed; they say only Sun and Stars. If the GOD or the creator made these texts, how come these glaring omissions? May be the religions were created by the Creator to thwart or inhibit human's quest to find out the truth.

I wish the scientists success in their endeavour to find out the truth about the universe and how it was created.

This is a major step toward finding the answers to fundamental physics questions about the nature of
matter in the universe, and how the world as we know it began. That's what makes this so cool! I want us
to find away to harness energy from something like this.

I can't wait to see what we find.

I have been browsing online greater than three hours today, but I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the web will be much more helpful than ever before.
