The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Atom Smasher Achieves 'Big Bang' Collisions

This posting is a follow up to the earlier posting on the Large Hadron Collider. Scientists at the world's biggest atom smasher called the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN said today, March 30, 2010, that they had conducted the first experiments at conditions nearing those immediately after the creation of the universe by colliding protons at record power, mimicking conditions close to the Big Bang that created the universe.

This is physics in the making and the beginning of a new era with relationship to the energy levels achieved as the detectors recorded the collisions of beams of sub-atomic particles at close to the speed of light.

It is also worth noting that today’s experiments did not destroy the world as some in the uneducated religious community said it would. Go Figure?!?


  1. I bet that lady in the photo was reading her bible aloud all day to ward off the Evil scientists who were attempting to play god!

    I should ask Barb whether she recited Biblical verses all day too.

    On second thought, maybe not.

    It was a GRAND DAY for Science today, my friend. A Grand Day!

  2. Hello Muddy,
    Keep an eye out for the Charlie Rose program where they talk about the LHC and the search for the Higgs Boson Particle along with others they are hoping to find and those that they don't have a clue about. Very Interesting program.

  3. They have just spoken about String Theory and maybe finding the evidence of multi-dimensions. Brave New World!!
