By this time you have read enough about this. I cannot resist writing about this. I had to wait till Saturday where this post suits the best. So the experiment is started and nothing has happened to our planet. I am still alive and so you are. I was forced to write because of a news I read in paper. A girl committed suicide with the fear of explosion. No guesses that she was illiterate and studied till third grade only.
So what is this experiment?? What is this Large Hadron Collider or LHC?? This LHC is world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator. A particle accelerator is something which uses electric fields to propel electrically-charged particles to high speeds. You can assume that LHC is like a our CRT monitors or TV’s but at a larger scale.
What is the purpose of this experiment?? Scientists are trying to solve the mysteries of universe. How it was born?? What was there before?? What is this dark matter actually?? To tell you the fact that this dark matter occupies 22% of universe. If they succeed in experiment then we will probably know 22% of universe at least. That in turn will be a huge achievement and many mysteries may be solved.
This experiment is being conducted in a circular tunnel, 27km long, at Geneva. It took almost 14 years to make the tunnel ready for experiment. Now it’s started on 10th September. The energy will increase later. This is just start. It will take time for the results. It is indeed amazing that big bang alike situation will be created on our very own Earth. Now wait for the results. You can read more about LHC here.
