I wish I had bothered to finish my GCSE science coursework.. could have been a full on physics geek by now and lived my life happily!
Arguments over the LHC only got media attention about 3 or 4 months before it was turned on. I expect the media won`t be interested again until late July.
The black hole has an accretion disk, which many celestial objects have and have been observed, so the physics concerning that are set. And the other physical model is dealing with the jet, and we can base those models off of quasar and blazar jets which are also frequently observed. Of course, the latter two objects have active black holes at the center and hence why they have such powerful jets, but nonetheless.
The physics is pretty messy, and even today you need a huge machine to complete the calculations, but the animations are of good physical soundness and are pretty accurate in their description.
This one just eats.
I love it. Ahh Black holes. always fun times.
And why do i always think of Event Horizon when i hear Sam neil. Without eyes. and trying to kill Morpheus...Wheres neo when ya need him hmm?
i love you. marry me?
I guess people who are stupid enough to buy in to the idea of the LHC devouring the world have equally impressive memory spans :P
OMGOMGOMG!!!!!!!! THE LHC IS GOING TO ACTIVATE!!! RUUUUUUUN!
Yaaaaay nerd jokes indeed.
So.. is the panic from the LHC just over or something? I don`t hear about it anymore.
