Re: Ion beam schedule

I believe this might be the document you want: http://lhc-commissioning.web.cern.ch/lhc-commissioning/planning/2010/2010-LHC-schedule_v1.4.pdf As I see it, that schedule says that there will be a 3 day technical stop, starting Monday, where they will be running Ion Beams as far as SPS (but not into ...

Re: Electromagnetic Black Holes

It might be possible to utilise this for microwave power transmission. If scientists succeed in creating an equivalent that operates within the visible/IR range then it might have some implications for solar power - although I'm not certain whether you'ld be able to use this to generate electricity ...
