DOOMSDAY conspiracy theories abound, as the new CERN Large Hadron Collider experiment will create unprecedented levels of energy on July 5.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research is celebrating its tenth anniversary with its Large Hadron Collider after it was shut down three years ago.
The European organization, also known as CERN, exploits the largest particle physics laboratory in the world.
CERN’s main function is to provide particle accelerators and other infrastructure needed for high-energy physics.
Numerous high-profile experiments have been realized at the institute through international collaborations, such as the establishment of the World wide web†
CERN is also used to refer to the lab, which in 2019 had 2,660 employees and housed approximately 12,400 users from institutions in more than 70 countries.
CERN is scheduled for a series of events starting on July 3, 2022, with the first celebrations of the tenth anniversary of the discovery of the Higgs boson†
On July 5, 2022, there will be collisions with unprecedented energy levels at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The LHC, the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, is at the center of conspiracy theories surrounding CERN.
People have shared their superstitions regarding the “portal” that will open after two high-energy particle beams are set to travel at nearly the speed of light before colliding.
“Anyway, @CERN will open a multidimensional portal on July 5 and will use dark matter! Everything is fine”, someone said on Twitter.
“What if CERN really opened a gate to hell or something,” another person? tweeted†
CERN was in the news after the hit show Stranger Things came out in 2016.
Scientists have posited that we can use gravity to test for the possibility that other dimensions exist, and for this reason the LHC has been under critical scrutiny.
“One way to see evidence for other dimensions is gravity — specifically the theoretical particle associated with gravity, the graviton,” reported Energy†
“One theory suggests that the graviton can move in all dimensions, not just those we live in.
“And if we can create gravitons at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, we may be able to see evidence that they leave our dimensions for others.”
This theory and the popular TV show were a catalyst for people to feel apprehensive about the events of July 5.
However, this does not stand in the way of CERN’s celebrations.
The start of Run 3 of the LHC will be streamed live on CERN’s social media channels.
This marks the launch of the new physics season at the Institute’s flagship accelerator.
It comes ten years after groundbreaking research on the Higgs Boson was presented to a packed CERN auditorium.
CERN says events will look back on where a decade of Higgs Science has brought the field and at the same time looks forward to new prospects.
