You know I've been reading comments on youtube about how LHC is going to create a black hole and destroy earth. That's rubbish...or issit possible, I can't how that makes sense.

Your explanation of strangelet particles seems more plausible

By Blogger Soqcrates, at 11:57 PM  

With regards to death by strangelet, Wikipedia says that

A detailed analysis concluded that the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) collisions were comparable to ones which naturally occur as cosmic rays traverse the solar system, so we would already have seen such a disaster if it were possible. RHIC has been operating since 2000 without incident.

Youtube is full of couch scientists so you can just ignore 95% of what you see there. Science has progressed to a point where it is virtually impossible for the layperson to have any idea of what researchers are really doing. Just take a look at this diagram (see url) of a proton, how many people you know can actually understand this?

that's not so difficult what! i understood quarks as like, particles, gluon as glue, then it's not so bad... though i really don't get angular momentum and spin, though i understand it's something to do with charge?

it's better than the study of humanities, which cannot EVEN be represented in a simplistic visual.

It's a little more complicated than that and bOb, you're not exactly the average man in the street either.

(p.s. spin not related to charge)
