CERN prepares to announce LHC findings

Scientists are preparing to reveal their latest findings from the LHC in a seminar on December 13th.

It isn't clear exactly what will be announced, fuelling speculation that the "God particle" might have been found or that new evidence has been discovered to conclude whether or not it exists. "It is anticipated there may be some interest in this because we collected five times more data this year than we anticipated," said Dr Alan Barr. "This is enough to give pointers of what is happening whether there is a Higgs boson, there is no Higgs boson, or there is something completely different, and even more interesting. "

"At a special meeting at the Cern laboratory near Geneva in Switzerland, scientists from the two main experiments targeting the Higgs boson will disclose their latest findings."

"We have discovered an interdimentional portal to the mythical land of Amazon. Let's go!" The scientists have discovered said portal and all scarpered off through it. The conference is postponed to last week.

We did find a faster than light molecule, but the rest of the scientific world said it was too inconvenient for them so we will announce it was a mistake. Even if they did, all that would be shown is that it takes something like 11.4 Terawatt/h to accelerate something as small as a Neutrino faster than light. Now start making the math how much power we would need to accelerate a 5 pound garden chair.(hint: the power required to accelerate the double mass at the same speed does not double, it quadruples).

Skookum, why inconvenient? and they are Neutrinos, not molecules ;-) Sorry like I have stated before my physics is rubbish. I was just thinking along the lines that it kind of messes up the theory that nothing travels faster than light. Surely that is going to have a lot of implications for many scientists work and theories? If proven of course.

The only particles that can travel faster than light are massless particles. We suspected this for a long time already. This might be the proof.

There are heaps of things on the page that could be this this, so I'm in my normal state of confusion. Sorry about that. (I would rather be in the state of Arkansas.) Is it still true that the problem with a particle going the speed of light, is that it gains mass as it approaches light speed, which in turn makes it require more energy to gain speed (and round and round...?) So, it could never get there.

Surely that is going to have a lot of implications for many scientists work and theories? If proven of course. Hi Skookum, I think very few physicists would find it inconvenient - rather it would allow them them to pursue new physics and create a name for themselves. Physicists are, believe it or not, not stuck in orthodoxy, but actually relish the idea of novelty. And there would be nothing better than digging into a new area o... [More]
