Haha when I saw it I knew it was a particle collider. Then I was trying to remember where it was (which I knew it was in Switzerland) and I didn't remember the name. Then I saw the first comment... Gosh what a party-pooper! lol
haha indeed he is To be honest I wouldn't have recognized this thing myself probably. I may have guessed it, but yea it could have been anywhere. o.o There are lots of colliders around the world, the LHC in Switzerland is probably just the most popular out there.
Oh...I'm checking out what this is...it has something to do with particles or something...
Hey...I've seen this before....South Park...Imaginationland... have you seen it?... I'm not making it up. They actually made like a couple of episodes of this machine. It's suppose to be a gate way to another dimension... Imaginationland.. LOL!
lol nah I don't watch south park, sounds funny though.
Actually it's a large hadron collider. They throw particles with high energies and speedness at each other and analyze their reactions and fission products. They are looking for a very special particle called the "Higgs" which has not even been proven to exist yet.
noo not at all. It will be active until 2013 which is about the time they will need to find the Higgs particle. The discovery of the Higgs particle is essential for further research in this field, I'm afraid I can't really explain this in detail to you I'm back from my trip and I can tell you that there are places which are open to visitors; but to get access to the main areas you'll have to be in contact with any important people over there. Unfortunately the collider was active during my visit so I had no chance to actually see it because I would have been destroyed by energy and radiation
