CERN restarts Large Hadron Collider, seeks dark universe

CERN restarts Large Hadron Collider, seeks dark universe | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
By Robert Evans GENEVA (Reuters) - Scientists at Europe's physics research center CERN on Sunday restarted their "Big Bang" Large Hadron Collider (LHC), embarking on a bid to probe into the "dark universe" they believe lies beyond the visible one. CERN reported that particle beams were successfully pushed around the LHC in both directions after a two-year shutdown for a major refit described as a Herculean task that doubled its power -- and its reach into the unknown. Study of many billions of c
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Mankind explores the beginnings of the universe, but are we capable of using the knowledge for the betterment of our world?

A new paper published by an MIT physicist claims to theoretically prove that so-called "quantum entanglement" -- two particles seemingly occupying more than one state simultaneously -- gives rise to a wormhole that allows particles to commu...
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I love this line: "It's the ultimate catastrophe: that theoretical physics has led to this crazy situation where the physicists are utterly confused and seem not to have any predictions at all." Means they're as confused as the rest of us.
