from the article on the dump: "In experiments, researchers found that an 86-microsecond exposure of the beam would bore a hole 40 meters into a block of copper." Sounds like a good way to make a new coal mine, zoom in from one of our star-wars satellites and blamo! a new mine.

Now this is scary:

Hackers attack Large Hadron Collider

Scientists working at Cern, the organisation that runs the vast smasher, were worried about what the hackers could do because they were "one step away" from the computer control system of one of the huge detectors of the machine, a vast magnet that weighs 12,500 tons, measuring around 21 metres in length and 15 metres wide/high.

If they had hacked into a second computer network, they could have turned off parts of the vast detector and, said the insider, "it is hard enough to make these things work if no one is messing with it."

I thought this was cute... on the radio the other day the voice was saying "We should put a warning sign on the Moon. "If you find this sign and there's not a planet right over there, DON'T BUILD A SUPER COLLIDER!".

I was listening about this on a podcast last night:

Wonder if the hackers know about the killer stranglets?

:lol: Your typo has this page on second results in Google: http://www.google.com/search?q=supper+collider

Yanche wrote:The US version of a Superconducting Supper Collider was to be built in Texas. It was canceled by Congress in 1993. See:

Another short sighted example US investment in research tools needed by scientists to solve the world's energy needs. Do you think it will be American companies and workers that will benefit by its future scientific discoveries? We had our chance an blew it.

You have correct link, you spelled super as supper. :P This topic is result number two for "supper collider". Guess it would be useful for those of use trying to smash meatloaf together at the speed of light.

They won't be smashing meatloaf or anything else for a while as they toasted a really big transformer during the tests.

I saw a few interesting facts on this toy in this mornings paper.
They used enough wire building this thing to go to the sun and back, that is 184 million miles. :shock: No wonder copper costs so much!
A proton travelling at about the speed of light has the inertia of a family sedan at 17,000 MPH.

Any others?

I doubt it - who was the genius who sold this bill of goods to the world? Whatever happened to good ol' common sense.
