Large Hadron Collider, Universe and Everything
Let me ask, are you scared or excited about the first successful test runs of the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland? Do you even know about the project? Because if you don’t, it’s about the time to learn the details and make up your mind.
There are two large camps of scientists out there. Both agree that LHC is the end of the world as we knew it, but each groups sees it from two radically different perspectives. First, believe that we are on the verge of a tremendous breakthrough and vigilantly developing the exploration plans for dark matter, mass and gravity. Others are concerned and scared to death by the idea of inducing a black hole that will grow rapidly to consume the planet and finish our existence.
I’m a practical person and my firm believe is that it’s our chance to make a huge step towards the exploration of the universe, building incredible devices and evolving in millions of other ways. On the other hand, the perspective of Big Bada-Bum isn’t that pleasant. On top of that, it’s a morality question - are these scientists in power to decide for the rest of us whether to ruin Earth or not. Many of us still have unfinished business here.
