Sanchos claims - Any merit whatsoever?

Last couple of days there's been quite lengthy discussions regarding this mans claims (much thanks to me, I'll un-willingly admit). So I thought I'd start a thread about two of the more interresting claims: http://www.cerntruth.com/?p=55 The Quark Gluon soup that will kill us all http://www.cerntrut...

Re: Need some help with Vacuum metastability disaster scenario

I just realized that I never thanked either one of you properly for taking the time to adress my fears. I really appreciate it, so thank you guys=)

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

we are able to register the excessive flux of neutrino from the Earth already now! (later...) I do not know if there are some online internet pages, which show the present flux of neutrino. Wow Ivan, you can measure the neutrino flux yourself? That's impressive. How do you build your own neutrino d...

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

we are able to register the excessive flux of neutrino from the Earth already now! Do you have any evidence supporting this specific statement? I do not know if there are some online internet pages, which show the present flux of neutrino. If present flux of neutrino is the same as it was years ago...

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

You beat me to it Stephen=) I suppose the only evidence we'll get from him is yet another calculation made by his Tetris-based programme. But if I'm wrong, it would be really nice to see either (a) how a potential increase in excess neutrino flux would be harmful or (b) an explanation as to how they...

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

Ivan, busy day today? Have seen your crackpot claims all over the web today, even at 2012 related forums. What gives? On a sidenote, I think that you really, really should get a renewal of the perscribtions that kept you away for 4 months. I honestly think that it would be best both for you and the ...

Re: Need some help with Vacuum metastability disaster scenario

By the way, in the ArXiv article they state that the observed upper limit for Fe is 10^19eV. What would that translate to in TeV? And yet another stupid question, the Oh-my-God particle that was extremely energetic when it hit the detectors, but isn't it possible that the energy was far less from wh...

Re: Need some help with Vacuum metastability disaster scenario

So basically we should be safe?=) There is something that I wonder about though. In the previous post you wrote: Considering ion collisions specifically in addition to the p-p collisions, and considering gold collisions specifically rather than just heavy ion collisions in general, is done to close ...

Re: Need some help with Vacuum metastability disaster scenario

As far as I know, heavy ion collisions are a bit like chain crashes on highways - there is a lot of mess all around but all individual car (particle) collisions are not more energetic than when just two cars collide. In the LHC heavy ion runs, per-particle energy will be way lower than in proton ru...

Re: Need some help with Vacuum metastability disaster scenario

It's hard to prove or disprove hypotheses based on assumptions of existence of physics that weren't observed yet. According to basic logic, in the statement "if A then B" if A is false then the statement is true whatever the B is so that does not tell us anything about whether B is true or false. A...

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

Ivan? As in Ivan Gorelik, aka Dr. Dark Energy? Wow, I've read quite a bit about you and must admit that although I don't agree with you or am able to find and peer-review publications that support your theories, I find your theories entertaining. It is apparent that you do not approve of the experim...

Re: Need some help with Vacuum metastability disaster scenario

Any input here would be deeply appreciated, even if it just address one or a few of my questions. And if I've asked questions that have already been answered, please hint me in the right direction of the answers=) I am aware that Stephen had a thread on Vacuum metastability, but I couldn't find any ...

Need some help with Vacuum metastability disaster scenario

Ok, so I'm writing a short piece in Swedish about the safety of the LHC-collisions and has now written about all scenarios except the most far-fetched of them all, the Vacuum metastability disaster. I know they deal with it it in the LSAG-report but that isn't as conclusive as I would like it to be=...

Hi everybody

Just dropping by to say hello. Hope to be able to follow the progression of LHC and the many exciting experiments that are going to take place in the comming years, and hope to have an equal amount of interresting discussions...
