Large Hadron Collider

by Chrome Blog on September 10, 2008

What has the Large Hadron Collider got to do with Chrome? Well not much besides today Google’s logo features something called the Large Hadron Collider.

Not knowing what the heck a Hadron Collider is i checked around and it’s the worlds largest Particle Generator and is up near the French/Swiss border outside of Geneva. The reason it’s on the homepage is because today they are making the first attempt to circle a beam through the Hadron Collider and it will be Webcast at 07:00 UTC.

After testing they are going to attempt to smash 2 particles in to each other at the speed of light, nobody fully knows “what” will happen but they “think” it’s safe. 😀

They need lots of computers to crunch the data if we are still alive after the particles settle, so if you want to help then they have LHC@Home which is the same principal as SETI.

Here’s the Logo, also Chrome is so fast they could just tweak the Hardon Collider logo for Chrome’s 1st Birthday. 🙂

The webcast is really interesting.

There’s a typo in your text. It puts Collider mishaps in perspective; the most debated kind — from the Hadron Collider — could range from interesting to catastrophic, while the latter might result in docking… and that’s just plain wrong.

I guess the universe still exists. At least for now. In a weird way, I think a lot of us were sort of hoping for something to happen today. Perhaps a small worm hole or something.

the last Hadron reference is misspelled.. it says “… they could just tweak the HARD-ON!!”

gtul1 – the universe does still exist because they only sent one stream in one direction. The real test is when they send particle streams in both directions and they actually collide! That is when the potential discoveries happen. Funny news piece recorded in the central control room for the collider had the countdown in French dubbed in English, neuf, huit, sept, six, cinq, quatre, trois, deux, un… and the clapping started immediately – the test was done. Of course it takes about a millisecond for a particle to go 17 miles…successful, but only technically exciting…
