Re: Proton vs Graphite

Yes there is a titanium plate and nitrogen chamber but main decelerating medium is still the carbon block and I think majority of protons will make it there (almost) undisturbed - otherwise the carbon would be unnecessary. The purpose of the nitrogen is to prevent fire in case of fault of the shapin...

Re: Proton vs Graphite

On the other hand we have to take another look at the dump itselfe, it is not only the carbonblock but before this also another strong magnet forcing the protons on a spiral track which makes them lose some of their energy by radiating. So the question is also how much of the enregy is converted to...

Re: Proton vs Graphite

If the second car is stationary its the same impact energy as hitting the wall ? Assuming the 2 are aligned. If the other car is going 12MPH and the accelerated car is going 3500MPH then its a 3512MPH head on collision not 290MPH ? Um... no. It's like a 3500 kg car crashing into a stationary 12 kg ...

Re: Review of Black Hole Risks

You're just repeating the same old arguments, while the author makes certain new claim to invalid these arguments. I fail to see how survivability of neutron stars can affect safety of LHC. It all reminds me of a B-grade horror movie - you can enjoy the thrill, but you must ignore things that defy ...

Re: ** Current Events and discussion **

I wonder why, before they ramp down, the energy goes even higher for a while.

Re: Proton vs Graphite

Awww... yeah makes sense. I guess at 3.5 TeV protons are way heavier than carbon nuclei too so whole dump is more like braking foam than like a wall for them.

Re: Review of Black Hole Risks

Yet another fact that always comes on my mind is, people around LHC are not mad scientists who are ready to die in the name of science. They: 1/ understand the matter and can consider real risks 2/ have their own lives and families they want to return to after doing science at LHC So any theory abou...

Re: Intensities

LHC1 is an interactive page, operators can (and often do) change its contents, displayed graphs and info according to what they are working on. Just now it's only displaying beam intensities (blue line for B1 intensity, red line for B2 intensity) and not magnet energy. LHC_STATUS is more stationary ...

Re: Review of Black Hole Risks

Can you give me a direct answer as to why his claim about white dwarfs, magnetic fields and neutron stars aren't true, aside from saying that he is an idiot? Why? You have got many direct answers here already. It doesn't seem you understood many of them as this paper is just the same old story in a...

Re: Creating "Sparks"

Did I say TLPs don't exist? No. I just said I don't see anything dangerous about them. And that I believe they have very simple explanation which is just yet to be verified. But some people around here prefer seeing quark-gluon plasma balls, giant whales or hungry aliens instead of simple explanatio...

Re: Creating "Sparks"

And if we are talking about lunatics there is a rare event on the moon: "Transient Lunar Phenomenon" where a serious light flash is produced (see pic.). "The physical mechanism responsible for creating a TLP is not well understood. Of the many theories proposed, ..." It's exactly what's written the...

it didn't collapse from the impact of the airplanes hitting the building If the last domino in the row falls down, was it because you pushed the first one or not? In WTC collapse there is nothing that is not understood and there was nothing new discovered by the accident, maybe except that there re...

The fact is, we have already exploded in 2008 but they decided to keep it secret.

Re: Creating "Sparks"

If somebody who doesn't even understand physics is claiming that LHC is dangerous, these are not legitimate claims and these are not legitimate reasons to shut LHC down. The less the person understands what's going on the more is he 100% sure LHC is dangerous. Yes, if you asked a statics expert whet...
