Has the LHC destroyed the world yet?

In case you are worried about the LHC destroying the world you can check the status of the current situation by visiting this site: http://hasthelargehadroncolliderdestroyedtheworldyet.com/

I’m only joking of course, no need to panic just yet. We can all panic later when nobody finds the Higgs boson and we all need to come up with better theories to explain the world around us. And I’m not the only one who thinks so. Stephen Hawking said in a BBC interview that "I think it will be much more exciting if we don’t find the Higgs. That will show something is wrong, and we need to think again. I have a bet of one hundred dollars that we won’t find the Higgs." In the same interview Hawking mentions the possibility of finding superpartners and adds that "whatever the LHC finds, or fails to find, the results will tell us a lot about the structure of the universe."

Whatever happens, I’m sure there are other things out there with better possibility of destroying the world. The LHC is what people call science, these days. Just sort of more elaborate and expensive Smile

  1. True, science has become more expensive and elaborate these days – far from the understanding of the common man! I wonder why they take so much pain in carrying out such experiments. They’re good in a way but it’d be better if they use all that money for the welfare of the people first. At times, I wonder how unbalanced our world is.Cheers,Divoo

    its  such a coincidence..
    My friend  in Chennai and i  talked  this weekend  abt  Stephen Hawking…and  now even  a Dutch friend 
    was reading a book  abt this topic….and now u…lol
    its worldwide.
    tx for sharing  and  lots of  smiles

  3. Yeah I heard about the Greek guys hacking it but I hope people who think they can hack into stuff like that are more sensible than to try and do real harm. As for the fact it has stopped working… well… not everything can go smoothly in such an experiment, I was sort of expecting it.Oh come on "God", sense of humor? We’re still too small for such concepts 🙂
