Large Hadron Collider sets atom-smashing record


Alexander G. Higgins The Associated Press

GENEVA -The world’s largest atom smasher has set a record for high-energy collisions by crashing two proton beams at three times more force than ever before.

The $10 billion Large Hadron Collider directed the beams into each other Tuesday (March 30, 2010) as part of its ambitious bid to reveal details about theoretical particles and microforces.

The collisions start a new era of science for researchers working on the machine below the Swiss-French border at Geneva.

Scientists at a control room at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, broke into applause when the first successful collisions were recorded. Their colleagues from around the world were tuning in by remote links.

wasnt that the machine the doom n gloom crowd say was going and to spin the earth into oblivion??

they now have to analayze the data and see if they find new sub-atomic particles.  Maybe, they will find evidence of God.

Higgs boson can’t hide: ‘end-game’ approaching in hunt for ‘God particle’

Published On Wed Mar 07 2012

Robert Evans Reuters News Agency

GENEVA- Physicists investigating the make-up of the universe said on Wednesday they were closing in on the long-sought but elusive Higgs boson they believe was key to turning debris from the Big Bang into stars, planets and finally life.

Large Hadron Collider tuns up power

The researchers spoke after the U.S. Fermilab laboratory reported that it had spotted likely signs of the particle. The European CERN research centre saw similar signals late last year.

“The end-game is approaching in the hunt for the Higgs boson,” said Jim Siegrist, Associate Director for High Energy Physics at the Department of Energy in Washington, which oversees Fermilab operations.

“It is good to see all the signs lining up,” said CERN spokesman James Gillies, while Oliver Buechmueller of the centre's CMS experiment said: “It seems we are getting closer and closer ... this summer is going to be very hot.”

But they all insisted it was much too early to claim a formal discovery, which would fill in the last major gap in the so-called Standard Model of particle physics which has underpinned science's view of the cosmos for 40 years.

Existence of the boson, and its linked particle field, was posited in 1964 by Briton Peter Higgs who argued a mechanism must exist that turned matter into mass after the primeval explosion that created the universe 13.7 billion years ago.

The search only began in earnest in the 1980s, first in Fermilab's Tevatron particle collider and later in a similar machine at CERN, but most intensively since 2010 with the start-up of the European centre's Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

In December last year, after only 18 months of operations, CMS and its LHC sister research team ATLAS reported “tantalizing glimpses” of what could well be the Higgs in the product of tens of millions of particle collisions in the collider.

The collisions, at a tiny fraction under the speed of light, recreate in miniature the type of events that occurred immediately after the Big Bang, all monitored and recorded by computers.

The latest turn in the Higgs saga came at an annual scientific gathering, the Moriond Conference, in the Italian Alpine ski resort of La Thuile with scientists from the Tevatron coming up with near-final measurements from their machine.

These, emerging from study of the recordings of the final collisions in the Tevatron before it was closed down last September, showed Higgs-like phenomena in the same energy range as the LHC, 115 to 130 Giga electron-Volts (GeV).

Italian researcher and blogger Tomasso Dorigo, who works with both CERN and Fermilab, said the independent but similar results from differing experiments “does raise the odds to which I am willing to bet that the Higgs is there.”

Pauline Gagnon, a scientist with the ATLAS team at CERN who is attending the Moriond meeting, provided a vivid illustration of what the latest information means.

“This is a bit like seeing the first pimples when a child develops chicken pox. Until she is covered with them, despite some early tell-tale signs, it is too early for a definitive diagnosis,” she wrote on her blog.

Scientists are now looking to the next few months at the subterranean LHC—in which during a winter break engineers have sharply boosted the total collision energy—to come up with conclusive proof that Peter Higgs, now 82, was right.

The giant circular machine, the largest single scientific experiment ever mounted, is expected to start running again in mid-March and stay in operation until November. “The excitement is mounting,” said Buechmueller.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

A Higgs Boson walks into a church. The priest looks up and says "I'm sorry we don't allow your type in here"

The Higgs Boson replies "But without me, how can you have mass?"

did the folks at CERN ever set out to prove the existence of God? I though they wanted to validate or invalidate the standard model of physics?

Plus, I read that the term "the God particle' had nothing to do with God.

The draft title of a book by Nobel physicist Leon Lederman was "The Goddamn Particle". This book described the frustration of trying to find Higgs. But the publisher felt it would offend people so they renamed it "The God Particle".  Not a damn thing to do with religion.

I know many people who would dispute your statement. For you and many it may be true but for many others, religion does make life better.
