any explanations on the particle accelerator and the elusive 'God particle'. I have tried to understand this in laymens terms, so far it seems to suggest that particle is untraceable because it 'jumps', dimensions, if anyone can help me get a handle on this i would be most appreciative. remember i am a dummy 🙂
i found this site which is a little helpful
Will we be fried by cosmic rays? Sucked into LHC-produced back holes? Hoovered up by wormholes to be dumped in a parallel Universe in another time? Will the world be tipped into a state in which we can't exist? No, no, no and no. The LHC can do nothing that nature hasn't done already, and we've survived it. It isn't expected to produce any black holes, or wormholes, whatsoever, and even if it does, they'll be extremely tiny, disappear in an instant, or be completely harmless. As for vacuum bubbles in which we couldn't exist, if the LHC could create them, then so would nature, but this has never happened.
As for those people who are reportedly suing CERN for endangering humankind — well, maybe they'd be a lot happier in a parallel universe anyway.
i like how much effort they put into soothng these worries. totally not biased.
an interesting read otherwise.
