And no black holes! Higgs boson?
Well, the BB would have been the product of an incredibly dense black hole, so you wouldn't expect it as a product I'd imagine.
It seems other sites are closer to the Higgs boson than LHC (at least, the Higgs was not the target of this experiment).
What's the worst that could happen?
This one is older. But it always spoke to me.
I can produce a mini big bang, but I just call it a bang.
Obligatory XCKD (contains language).
I recall that episode... but I must disagree, it is not older, not IRL nor in respective SciFi time. Alderaan was destroyed:
In a Galaxy
Sorry, my inner geek was speaking to me..
Your inner geek has failed you. It is, behold!
In a Galaxy
Far, Far Away
Get your facts straight, Trekkie!
Sigh.. not only are you missing "time", but it's not even the "scrolling text":
My inner geek is notoriously unreliable. He drinks too much. I've tried to talk to him about it, but, you know how he is.
Wait a minute, Far Far Away is where Princess Fiona was from, no?
Mini Big Bang is a bit of an oxymoron, no? Also, I got in a bit of a fury when I saw the butchered SW opening above, glad someone got it straight.
By 'mini big bang' they mean they've created a quark-gluon plasma which was a state of matter just after the big bang and can be approximated as nearly free quarks and gluons (which are normally bound together) - these are the building blocks of what you and me describe as matter (quarks make protons and neutrons among other things and gluons hold these together).
Amazing. I got both smarter and stupider for reading this thread.
So I guess it's a wash...
So, we were the Gods to this infinitely smaller Universe just created/destroyed?
(Refers back to another thread in PRSI.)
