How observant are you? Take a look at this Color Changing Card Trick. Can you spot the trick? Well, it’s not what you think…
As previously mentioned, the CERN Large Hadron Collider will start up today, Sep 10. The idea is to understand some of the conditions that were present at the start of the universe.
But not everyone believes the experiment is safe, including a commenter to my earlier post. There are concerns that microscopic black holes may be created that will ultimately lead to the end of the world.
Today’s start of the collider won’t do anything as yet. It will take months before the parts of the experiment that will allegedly cause black holes come to bear. And even then, as it is claimed, the black holes won’t immediately swallow the earth.
Actually I’m not too clear about both sides of the argument, not being a physicist and all. But it sounds both intriguing and potentially alarming.
It’s only 2 days to the start up of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on Sep 10. The collider is the world’s largest particle accelerator, spanning some 27 kilometers under Europe. This is a big event in physics, since it may help us understand the Big Bang a bit better.
Some time ago, a number of people feared that black holes will be created by the collider and will cause the end of the world. The LHC Safety Assessment Group however assured everyone that it was impossible for microscopic black holes to be created by the collider.
