    The large hadron collider is... well, large, but particle accelerators and "atom smashers" have been around for long before G1.

    Good to see the LHC is generating good results though.

    I'm surprised it hasn't been written in G1 stories as "Megatron's ULTIMATE ENERGY" maker.

    Well, he's got a fusion reactor on his wrist, so it would be kind of like a gunman trying to steal a catapult.

    The energy these things consume is huge compared to what they put out.

    I'm sure Megatron would reverse the polarity so it would put out more than consume. I know it wouldn't work that way, but you know how those writers were! LOL!

    It was probably just easier for them to make up something that didn't make any damn sense scientifically, but looked and sounded cool, like the ruby crystals.

    I suggested in the movie forum a while back that the LHC should be somehow involved in TF3. Even if the Decepticons had to soup it up to do something other than what it was originally designed for. It's got that giant ring for accelerating stuff so maybe if it could be modifed it would be just like the giant ring Space Bridge from the cartoon series and be used to bring Cybertron to Earth.

    It's nice to see that they're still doing some collisions before the shutdown, which has been moved to 2011 now, by the way.

    symmetry breaking Blog Archive CERN’s new LHC plan: Two years at 3.5 TeV
    There's the new schedule.

    They're shooting for 5 TeV per beam by the end of 2010. But that's still not full power. That would be 7 TeV. But it was still the highest energy collisions we've ever done.

    But no micro black holes, no Hawking radiation, no Higgs boson. *Sigh*. I wanna see the good stuff! Although I gotta say, I love the new particle track graphics they have now.

    I'm glad they're firing up the LHC and seeing what that baby can do.
