Holy friggin particles!!!!
OK Loons hate to burst your bubbles AGAIN but remember those friggin Mayans and that whole end of the world thingy in December 2012? Yeah, that. Well, physicists say the Large Hadron Collider churning away under the ground in Switzerland is expected to solve the riddle of ‘God particle’ in late 2012. Coincidence? I think not!
Want sauce with that?
OK, for all of you who haven’t been keeping up with the latest scientific nightmare. Scientists have built a multi billion dollar Large Hadron Collider (LHC) which is the mother of all particle accelerators. The machine is designed to shoot beams around a freezing 27km concrete ring smashing atoms together in the hope of finding the elusive Higgs boson, or “God particle“. This is all happening underground near Geneva. The machine has been dubbed the “doomsday device” because of fears it will open black holes and basically destroy the planet. Everybody panic!
Anywho, the machine, which took over 20 years to build, was ready to rock in 2008 but overheated during a test run and broke.After a year waiting for parts (hmm, obviously made in Russia!) the team were hit with a major scandal when one of the scientists was arrested for terrorists links. Brilliant. Now Danish physicist Dr Holger Bech Nielsen and Dr Masao Ninomiya from Japan claim the LHC is jinxed and more bizarrely by a future force trying to protect the world. Where the hell is Sarah Connor? They even go so far as to say their maths proves that nature will “ripple backward through time” to stop the LHC before it can create the God particle, like a time traveller. No seriously everybody panic!
