Hi Stephen, it's cool to see you passing by again.Stephen wrote:Have I missed any safety arguments concerning Pb + Pb collisions?
What I would like to see on the list are the arguments of the environment where collisions happen, along with the frequency. There isn't one place in our solar system where there is such a concentration of collisions, with so much luminosity at one spot, as at the lhc.
btw there is this previous post by this 'alpha - omega' guy with a biblical quote, it made me think of relevant story from that book:
"On the seventh day they were to march around the city seven times and the priests were to blow their ram's horns. This Joshua did, and he commanded his people not to give a war-cry until he told them to do so. On the seventh day, after marching around the city the seventh time, the priests sounded their ram's horns, and Joshua ordered the people to shout. The walls of the city collapsed, and the Israelites were able to charge straight into the city." Battle of Jericho
Just to point out that the louder and more intense you go, the bigger the chance becomes that you start to shake solid structures apart.
