The Big Bang Experiment
1 Attachment(s)
No, it's not something I did in my oven!
It's an experiment by CERN that begins on September 10th (likely today, by the time you see this) along the Swiss-French border, to test the Big Bang theory about the beginning of our universe and possibly re-create the beginning on a much smaller scale.
Frances, you're probably the closest - keep that oven safe from black holes :eek: !! ;)

Re: The Big Bang Experiment
A truly wonderful scientific investment and experiment. Who knows, perhaps there will be a technology product that results from the accelerator that ends up in a wood oven someday.

Either that, or we all get sucked into a black hole. I guess Frances would go first....

Re: The Big Bang Experiment
Thank you James. :)

Yes, we've been hearing a lot about this. So if you suddenly stop hearing from me, you'll know what's happened. By then it'll be far too late to do anything of course, but there should be time to fire up the oven one more time...

It all sounds like typical human nature to me: Hey, lets see what happens if we make a black hole!

Black Hole - Nuclear Waste = No Problem

Re: The Big Bang Experiment
I think itís pretty exciting. Itís a bummer that itís going to take them a full year to get it up to high heat (sort of like my oven :o )

Re: The Big Bang Experiment
Oh, I must have missed that bit... I thought I'd be buying little black holes in the super market by next week.

Re: The Big Bang Experiment
Frances, are you still there????

I think the great collision happened today, and we are worried. Have you seen any black holes today while taking the kids to school?

Re: The Big Bang Experiment
No little black holes so far... I had to go to the dentist this morning so I am specially pleased by that fact.

The scientists seem to be pleased with how it all worked out, too. But I'll be sure to keep you informed if I see anything unusual heading your way.

Re: The Big Bang Experiment
Are any of you following the playoffs for the next World Cup at all?

The headline of the largest Swiss newspaper today translates as: What a pity we're not going to be swallowed by a black hole after the results against Luxemburg...

Re: The Big Bang Experiment
Here in North America, the American focus is generally on football (the kind with the pointy ends) from now to January. Canadians ... generally, hockey ... from about now to June :rolleyes: .

Me - maybe the Superbowl and some of the Stanley Cup playoffs - my interest in spectator sports only surfaces now and then. The rest of the time, I'd be fine with it if they fell into a black hole.

But then, I'm probably not the best example of what's typical over here :D .
