Science?

So I have watched a few shows and tried to read up on the CERN large Hadron collider thingy that they are building in Europe. They spent 10 BILIION dollars trying to find an invisible particle.  It’s a 17mile long tube that accelerates particles really fast and collides them to see what happens. Except the thing never really works. Every time they turn it on something goes wrong. The scientists don’t even know what will happen exactly when they get it to work. THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN THEY GET IT TO WORK AND YET THEY MANAGED TO GET 10 BILLION IN FUNDING! Potentially the damn thing could create a freaking black hole! It could also let them see what the big bang was like. While I’m on the topic of the big bang, what actually went bang? I mean there was supposedly nothing and then the universe was created in the big bang. If there was NOTHING how did it explode? I’m not some religious nut that thinks science is sacrilegious or anything like that but I just don’t get the nothing=everything equation. Then again I am not a physicist and I don’t study this stuff for a living. So what happens if we find the hidden particle? Does anything change?

One thought on “Science?

  1. The standard model of physics essentially explains 3 of the forces and how they influence particles. This model predicted there are a variety of subatomic particles, which have all been discovered. Except this last one.

    The LHC is now up and running and hunting for it to finally complete the standard model. Then, the world is our oyster.
