It will be exciting to hear what kind of real science results they start getting from the LHC.

I have been reading a lot about the in-depth science of what they are looking for in the LHC experiments, it takes time to get your head around the theoretical physics.

I found this video that explains the LHC science in greater depth - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDToMXog1gE

It is very likely that any breakthrough we make in the realm of advanced physics will have it's origins at the LHC. If humanity are to take the next great step, great discoveries await to be made. We can only see 10% of what actually is in the cosmos which implies that there are discoveries to be made. To understand the very large, we are going to have to understand the very small. These are interesting times. All we need for icing on the cake is to find a SETI signal. That would give science investment a much needed push, rather than picking up the crumbs that fall from each countries defence programmes.

Good video John.

It's a good mention science funding needs...


It's just of recent that scientists studying the universe have said that they have only been acknowledgeing 10 percent of the universe because they had not accounted for water types that cloud stars in different regions of the universe.

And, so, now the universe is another 90 percent larger, visibly.

It will be really interesting if the particle colliding shows us stable energy forms that exist at other dimension frequencies...

It would be crazy to think that other groups of stars exist at other dimension's that we can't detect until we have the technology!!!

Hope fully the government would tell us. Thats the problem with funding...

Have a nice day.

I recall some posting on the net somewhere that earnestly argued that the VLC was suffering the difficulties it was because "we" were intervening from the future to try and protect ourselves from the harm it was capable of unleashing.

Just got the best chuckle out of that. So many many ways one could enjoy that line of "reasoning".
