For those of you who are not aware of what CERN is, the next two paragraphs are taken directly from the CERN website. They explain the “mission” of CERN and how they go about their research.
At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.
The instruments used at CERN are purpose-built particle accelerators and detectors. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before the beams are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions.
The most notable tool that CERN has is the Large Hadron Collidar (LHC) which is the most powerful particle collidar and most complex experimental facility ever built. The LHC has been met with skepticism since it was proposed and it has only gotten worse and more extreme as the project has progressed.
The LHC is responsible for unearthing new particles like the Higgs Boson (God Particle), creating and studying miniature black holes, and even possibly finding alternate universes. Some initially thought, and still think, that the LHC will create a black hole that will consume the earth. Thankfully, this hasn’t happened yet, or has it?
Some have started mapping the correlations between the LHC and earthquakes, drops in our magnetosphere, and various weather effects including oddly shaped clouds and storms. See some of the images below for examples of how the LHC is impacting cloud formations and who knows what else.
Others believe, and have some evidence to support, that the LHC has opened up a portal to hell. A chilling video on Youtube and other media have a recorded conversation that involves a scientist disappearing from a room after various screams were heard. I personally do not believe we have opened a portal to hell as we generally describe it. Hell can be a very different place depending upon who you ask.
I personally believe that the LHC is impacting our planet in ways we do not yet understand. I am glad that we are doing research like this to help us understand our universe, however we need to exercise great caution.
Science should not create natural disasters that kill hundreds or thousands of people and science should not be conducted recklessly. Do not get me wrong though, science should always push the boundaries of our capabilities and if done in a responsible matter should be pursued at all costs.
We have no way of knowing how this type of research can help or hurt mankind in the future. It may unlock infinite power sources, gateways to the universe, exotic particles that can be used to create anything in a blink of an eye, or a black hole that could consume our planet.
This topic is one that I plan on investigating far more in the future. Honestly, this article just scratches the surface and I want to get much deeper into this topic.
