Sept. 10: CERN scientists applaud as the first proton beam is fired through the Large Hadron Collider's tunnel near Geneva, Switzerland.
Sept. 10: CERN scientists applaud as the first proton beam is fired through the Large Hadron Collider's tunnel near Geneva, Switzerland.
 HONOLULU  —  A federal judge in Hawaii has dismissed a lawsuit trying to stop the world's largest atom smasher.

U.S. District Court Judge Helen Gilmor ruled Friday that federal courts don't have jurisdiction over the Large Hadron Collider in Europe, near Geneva.

Two Hawaii residents sued because they feared that the machine could create small black holes or other phenomena that could destroy the planet.

Most physicists say the collider is safe. The collider started low-power operation on Sept. 10 but suffered malfunctions and will be shut down until spring while it's repaired.

Big Bang Machine Gilmor did not address whether the collider poses a danger to the Earth.

"It is clear that plaintiffs' action reflects disagreement among scientists about the possible ramifications of the operation of the Large Hadron Collider," Gilmor wrote. "This extremely complex debate is of concern to more than just physicists."

The collider is a 17-mile ring of superconducting magnets that will send high-energy beams of subatomic particles crashing into each other, fracturing atoms into more fundamental particles that can be observed and studied.

Scientists hope the machine will reveal how the tiniest particles were first created after the "big bang," which many theorize was the massive explosion that formed the stars, planets and everything.

The plaintiffs, retired nuclear safety officer Walter Wagner and Spanish science writer Luis Sancho, filed suit in March. They wanted collider operations to be suspended until more safety reviews could be conducted.

Gilmor said they failed to prove that U.S. support of the project is a "major federal action" under the National Environmental Policy Act.

The United States provided $531 million for the construction of the $5.84 billion collider — less than 10 percent of the total cost.

She said the proper venue to debate U.S. support of the program is in Congress, not the federal courts.

Yeah. I posted something on this a while back. I said they are going to smash particles together and they will get smashed particles. That is all.

I check this website every once in a while just to make sure:

Seriously though...they were looking for their "god" particle.  I think they found it but it got loose and pierced a helium tank causing a leak that will shut it down till next spring...

Yep I remember that.

I have been following this device for a while. The construction alone was just incredible. The breakdown that took place in September is going to delay things until next year. That sucks.

The hope is that they find the Higgs Boson
particle.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Higgs_boson

That and a few other things. As with science though when you answer one question it raises many more. So it will be very interesting to see some of the other research that is done.

And then there are the crackpots.

Daily Galaxy favorite Walter Wagner has finally been thrown out of court!  For those of you who don't subscribe to Nutjob Monthly, Mr Wagner has been filing lawsuits to prevent the activation of the Large Hadron Collider - mainly based on the assumption that his time working in a hospital with nuclear medicine and a Hawaiian botanical garden gives him a better understanding of particle physics than almost every scientist on the planet.  It turns out this wasn't a great assumption.



As jerrymac said this is a bunch of adults getting together and smashing stuff. It goes to show that even with an Ivy league education and a Phd. That when we smashed stuff as kids it was fun. And we will find new ways to smash things when we get older.

For me I also love this stuff because it causes the creationist to get their panties in a bunch.

Sincerely,
Brendhan
