May you heard about the "Large Hadron Collider"
Whats about founding a Group of EVE Players (using BOINC - it works like the SETI@home Projekt) ?

- If someone would create one i'll immediately ^_^

You will find further information about the Project here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Large_Hadron_Collider

Here is the Homepage of LHC (where you can found groups, join groups, join the project or get link to download BOINC).

Best wishes Ghal

Partical accelerators are boring.

They NEVER drop loot no matter how many you explode. The LHC will be no different I am certain.

But it does make a fancy lightshow. Kinda like the old Amarr ships or disco setups Smile

First collisions start in approximately 6 weeks... The first beam starting on Wednesday was a lower risk thing


personally I think the thing should be blown up and the pieces melted down and buried very deep...

The risk is small but it's enough that it's insanity. No one KNOWS exactly how dangerous or safe it is, any risks and safety checks are based on theoretical ideas on how things might work, which means any statistics or probabilities are just there to look reassuring.

It's like the atomic bomb so many years ago, scientists had a bet on whether it would incinerate the atmosphere - they thought it had a chance of happening, but they are happy to risk billions of other people if it means they might get a nobel prize to fuel their ego or a promotion.

I think people who dont understand the stuff about what they are talking shouldnt be talking.

Not so much...cosmic rays have been running LHC experiments in our upper atmosphere since our atmosphere has been around...billions of years.

The real irony is that people who know nothing about physics are making conspiracy theories and worrying about "risks" they don't understand....

Nobody knows the world won't arbitrarily implode tomorrow, and you have just as much reason to believe that as you have to believe that the LHC will cause the world to end...

To quote Brian Cox, "Anyone Who Thinks the LHC Will Destroy the World is a ****"

And still there are people who believe they will arbitrarily go to a sweaty hot place or a nice fluffy air conditioned place when they die, based on a collection of ancient contradictions.

Did this ever get off topic? Rolling Eyes

Perhaps one of the CCP peeps can start such a team over at the LHC site? Surely we could put Singularity to good use for this if nothing else ;) Testing patches pre-deployment are for wussies and communists!

AFAIK, the data produced by the LHC will be sent to computational resources spread throughout all Europe, through GRID computing.

I thought there was one already, it has been going for a few years now.

Don't think there are many active peeps in the group atm.

The LHC is pretty well balanced on the risk vs. reward scale.

That's easy for you to say, it was your choice to go along with it.

Risk versus reward is a joke.

Why do the rest of us have to take such risks just so we can collide some particles?

I think you're just after easier targets for your black holes.

I'm really sorry, I'm 36 years old, I really should know better, but every time I hear about the LHC or see it written down, I just think:

Large Hard-on Collider

maybe it's because I was in Celtic Anarchy, QUAM, and INFOD, perhaps I should apply to Finfleet or MGRL!

You mean, next to zero risk for huge rewards ?
P.S. Yeah, kind of like highsec Laughing

Do you really think they would run something like that without the proper security measures...?
