Royal Pingdom » The computer infrastructure behind the Large Hadron Collider

by kasi77
CERN seems to be well-equipped to handle the data from the gigantic particle accelerator when you take a look at their data center.

Will Tomorrow Be The End Of The Universe?

by macbros
You see, there are a bunch of Geeks that have this gigantic toy, the largest machine ever built - a giant, ring-shaped atom smasher called the “Large Hadron Collider” (LHC). The thing is 27 kilometers around and will hurl a few tiny amounts of matter close to light speed in opposite directions around the rings of the LHC. Then, when they’re at full speed, they will cross the beams and smash the matter together inside four giant detectors. Didn’t they ever watch the Ghost Busters? You NEVER cross the beams!

Tous ça avec MES IMPOTS ! :)

La fin du monde pour mercredi prochain ?

by kooolman
"Mercredi prochain sera inauguré Le "Large Hadron collider" ou Grand collisionneur des hadrons (LHC), à la frontière franco-suisse. La mise en service du plus grand accélérateur de particules au monde soulève l'inquiétude de plusieurs grands physiciens, qui craignent que notre planète soit avalée par un énorme trou noir."

Lorsque le CERN propose de réinventer Internet

by cdonzel (via)
Apparemment, lorsque le Centre Européen de la Recherche Nucléaire (CERN) ne joue pas avec ses accélérateurs et détecteurs de particules pour fracasser les électrons entre eux, il travaille sur une nouvelle version d’Internet, annoncée comme 10.000 fois plus rapide que notre bon vieux WWW.


Black Holes In My Backyard?

by GorillaSushi
The Hadron collider will be smashing protons moving at 99.999999% of the speed of light into each other to recreate conditions existing a fraction of a second after the big bang. According to some theoretical models, tiny black holes could be produced in collisions at the LHC. They would then very quickly decay into what is known as Hawking radiation (the tinier the black hole, the faster it evaporates) which would be detected by experiments. But any physicist will tell you that there is no way to prove that generated black holes will decay!
