Power Of CERN Collider To Be Doubled, May Reveal Extra Dimensions

earthspaceAre we ready for a hint of the eleven-dimensional world? Via Reuters:

“When this refit is completed,” CERN scientist Marc Goulette says, gesturing across the gigantic Large Hadron Collider (LHC), “we shall be ready to explore an entirely new realm of physics.”

The collider is only five years old but, after swiftly finding a crucial missing link to support mankind’s main concept of the universe, is now entering a two-year revamp to double its power in the hope of breathtaking new discoveries.

Some scientists predict it might find a zoo of new particles or even catch hints that space has more than three dimensions. Oliver Buchmueller, an experimental physicist, also hopes to see proof the extra dimensions foreseen in string theory.

Could that take science beyond, into the extension of string theory that predicts the existence of parallel universes or a perpetually growing galaxy of universes, unpenetrable one from the other, that cosmologists call the Multiverse?

    Stephen Hawking said that he lost 100 dollars betting the Higgs boson wouldn’t be found. If he paid already, he may have lost the 100 dollars, but he hasn’t lost the bet yet. We have to wait until 2015. According to CERN Research Director, Sergio Bertolucci, “Only when we know that it has spin-zero will we be able to call it a Higgs.” On top of that, scientist, Raymond “Volkas says that physicists and Higgs-watchers may have to prepare themselves for the possibility that the LHC data never establishes whether or not the particle is the Higgs predicted by the standard model,” New Scientist reports. 2015 will be 48 years from time a paper was published, and three physicists received the Nobel prize for the first edition of “The Standard Model” of subatomic physics with the “Higgs mechanism.” But they had all given up and gone to other pursuits after the 1967 paper that eventually sparked the award. Why? Something has been holding back the hunt for the Higgs. https://www.facebook.com/notes/reid-barnes/has-something-been-holding-back-the-search-for-the-higgs-boson/430347917017788
