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?!?
