The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator.

 

 

^ really?

 

 

It first started up on 10 September 2008, and remains the latest addition to CERN’s accelerator complex. The LHC consists of a 27-kilometre ring of superconducting magnets with a number of accelerating structures to boost the energy of the particles along the way.  Inside the accelerator, two high-energy particle beams travel at close to the speed of light before they are made to collide. The beams travel in opposite directions in separate beam pipes – two tubes kept at ultrahigh vacuum. They are guided around the accelerator ring by a strong magnetic field maintained by superconducting electromagnets.

 

^ blah blah blah

 

The electromagnets are built from coils of special electric cable that operates in a superconducting state, efficiently conducting electricity without resistance or loss of energy. This requires chilling the magnets to ‑271.3°C – a temperature colder than outer space.

^ oooooooh, thank you Darth Vader - oh wait, should I call you Anakin? you know, for the LHC hipster cred?

For this reason, much of the accelerator is connected to a distribution system of liquid helium, which cools the magnets, as well as to other supply services.

^ go eat a tunafish sandwich

Space isn't cold.  It doesn't actually have a temperature.

 

Objects in space however, do.

not entirely accurate

 

the concept of 'back-radiation' can be misleading (even dangerous) because it is non-physical

 

THERE IS NO FLOW OF HEAT ENERGY FROM COLD TO WARM

No idea what this thread is supposed to be about, so here's a picture of a cat...

ur mom is boring

look

 

the first 13 TeV collisions are expected in late May to early June

 

if you don't like/understand that, move on ♥

They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

Space isn't cold.  It doesn't actually have a temperature.

 

Objects in space however, do.

Space is infinite, it is dark
Space is neutral, it is cold
Stars occupy minute areas of space
They are clustered a few billion here
And a few billion there
As if seeking consolation in numbers
Space does not care, space does not threaten
Space does not comfort
It does not speak, it does not wake
It does not dream
It does not know, it does not fear
It does not love, it does not hate
It does not encourage any of these qualities
Space cannot be measured, it cannot be
Angered, it cannot be placated
It cannot be summed up, space is there
Space is not large and it is not small
It does not live and it does not die

It does not offer truth and neither does it lie
Space is a remorseless, senseless, impersonal fact
Space is the absence of time and of matter

Their good friend Michael Moorcock. That's not a request by the way.
