Apocalypse is closer than ever

One of two things: either we get a response about the mysteries of the universe … or we will not.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) — a gigantic scientific instrument near Geneva, located at a depth of 100m below ground at the border between Switzerland and France. This is the world's largest particle accelerator is aimed at studying the smallest particles known to science — the fundamental building blocks. It will transform our understanding of the micro world right up to the atoms to the vastness of the universe.

Two beams of subatomic particles called 'hadrons' will move inside the circular accelerator in opposite directions, with each round gaining energy, accelerating to nearly the speed of light. Physicists use the LHC to recreate the Big Bang, pitting two beams frontally at a very high level of energy. Teams of scientists physicists from around the world will analyze the particles formed as a result of the collision, in a number of experiments using special detectors.

There are many theories concerning the LHC, in particular the consequences await us as a result of these collisions. It is safe to say that with the new accelerator will open a new world of physics. For decades, the Standard Model of particle physics faithfully served a physicist and as a means of understanding the fundamental laws of nature, but alas, it does not provide a complete picture. Only experimental data, obtained by LHC, will help to make significant progress in the understanding of the universe.

Scientists will be able to finally get the answers to the unanswered questions — What is mass? What is in 96% of the universe? Why are not there more antimatter? (Will establish differences between matter and antimatter) What is the matter in the first second of the universe?

 

However, according to two little-known American scientists, the launch of the Large Hadron Collider could lead to the Apocalypse. Walter Wagner and Luis Sancho filed lawsuits on the European Organization for Nuclear Research. They believe that as a result of collisions with such energy in the accelerator can form a black hole, which will continue to grow in the first suck himself Collider, Switzerland, Europe, and beyond them, and the entire planet Earth.

However, according to Russian scientists, the emergence of such holes is almost unbelievable. Man-made temporary eddies do not have anything to do with astronomical black holes. They are negligible and can be less than a second.


In any case, you and I can only guess whether there is another myth about the real end of the world. There is a way the official website where you can find out how much is left before the launch of the Large Hadron Collider … or until the apocalypse?
