So Wednesday has come and gone (almost) and the world hasn’t ended. Which of course it wouldn’t as they aren’t actually going to start doing experiments at the LHC until later this year. Today was just a test.
The ‘Have Your Say’ at the Beeb today was about this story and I am starting to get more annoyed by the pointlessness of the discussions they have on there. Todays question for instance:
“How important is it to carry out these types of experiments? Are you concerned about this particular experiment? How do you think this experiment will contribute to the advancement of science?”
That last question is obviously aimed at the all advanced particle physicists that read HYS then.
