Before the end of the world is a little less than a month. At least so say a number of scientists around the world. Cancel the apocalypse in court trying to Walter Wagner and Luis Sancho. In July, on the border of France and Switzerland will start the Large Hadron Collider, built up over 14 years. It is the world's largest particle accelerator. It will be recreated the Big Bang, due to which our universe emerged.
Protons to face with a hitherto unseen energy — 14 terraelektronvolt — a million times more than a single nuclear fusion. When confronted, they make millions of fragments, which are to be investigated.
With their help, the scientists hope to make significant progress in understanding, where did matter and time. In the Large Hadron Collider physicists want to catch the Higgs boson, also called the "God particle." On a theoretical justification for its existence being built all the modern theory of the origin of the universe. If the "God particle" is not found, all carefully bred physicists laws will only incorrect hypotheses. But Walter Wagner and Luis Sancho scary is not it. Scientists in his curiosity had gone too far. In the collision of particles with such energy in the accelerator can form inter-temporal vortex or black hole. Its mass will begin to grow from the beginning it will suck in the collider itself, then Switzerland, Europe, and the entire planet.
The Russian participants in the project say that the very appearance of such holes is almost unbelievable. But in any case, they should not be confused with the astronomical black holes. For its negligible weight of man-made turbulence will survive less than a second. Find out if the hole can only be examining the decay products of the photons.
According to the scientific value of the start-collider near Geneva is far superior to even fly to the moon. It was created 14 years, scientists have worked 40 countries. Passion for knowledge has already cost the participants of the project $ 8 billion. The pace of research is so vast that it is virtually impossible to predict the results. Physicists believe in only one thing — they are not inventors and researchers. That is all that will be created in the accelerator, has existed for billions of years. And here's how to dispose of the discoveries of mankind, will create a nuclear bomb or power plant — the question is not even tomorrow. All the advanced design created on the theoretical basis of the 19th century.
After first starting in July will take another year for scientists to configure complicated equipment. But already started the international negotiations on the construction of the next generation linear accelerator length of fifty miles. Among the five possible sites has a good chance to land near Dubna near Moscow. However, this work will not start before 2020.
