Large Hadron Collider - Acknowledged Safe, But Only At 40,000 Times Less Activity
When challenged by a barrage of legitimate scientific critique and concerned public alarm CERN is no longer relying on the original hypothetical security arguments which it had previously made as they are now out of date. CERN now relies strongly on an astronomical hypothetical analogy which is that the collisions within the Large Hadron Collider are roughly comparable to the collisions of particles with cosmic rays... which occur naturally.
However astrophysics will point out that the understanding of the mechanisms whereby cosmic rays collide with particles and their effects is still largely not understood. Actually, the high energy aspects which are the essence of this reference have never been directly observed. The AMS2 experiment which is currently scheduled to be held on the International Space Station in 2010 could theoretically provide new evidence which would support or shoot down CERN's hypothesis.
It is quite surprising that CERN does not hold off to learn the results of this upcoming experiment before firing up the Large Hadron Collider. It's only a few months away.
Another important argument against CERN's cosmic rays statement is that the collisions of subatomic particles which occur at extremely high energies would occur at a much more frequent rate inside the Large Hadron Collider than they would anywhere else on the surface of the Earth. In fact the ratio is 40,000 to 1 in favour of Large Hadron Collider Large Hadron Collider high energy collisions.
One firecracker is a fun pop. 40,000 firecrackers will bring down a building. It's hard to understand why the CERN "experts" fail to grasp this simple quantitative relationship. Oh... yes... sorry... they're the same ones that spent 10 billion dollars on their prodigious donut but forgot to buy a 10 dollar tarp to keep the bird droppings from shorting the whole thing out.
The astronomical analogy hypothesis which CERN has been producing to substantiate its claims that the Large Hadron Collider is perfectly safe is partially reliant on extremely dense matter which is known as a neutron star. The hypothesis begins from the assumption that these would have been totally consumed by black holes produced by cosmic rays if there was a danger to be had.
The neutron star structures are still largely not understood. There is significant dispute within the scientific community as to the actual structure of neutron stars therefore placing an analogy on a scientific theory which is nowhere near the point of having sufficient evidence to substantiate it is completely foolish.
There is no credibility in developing a scientific theory to allow for winged UCSF Med Center patients flying around breathing fire, and even less credibility in justifying significant determinations on the conclusions of said theory.
