DOOMSDAY conspiracy theories abound as CERN’s new Large Hadron Collider experiment on July 5 is set to create unprecedented levels of energy.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research is celebrating its tenth anniversary by restarting its Large Hadron Collider after it shut down three years ago.
The European organization, also known as CERN, operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world.
CERN’s main function is to provide the particle accelerators and other infrastructure needed for high-energy physics.
Many high-level experiments have been built at the institute through international collaborations, such as the creation of the World Wide Web.
CERN is also used to refer to the laboratory, which in 2019 had 2,660 staff members and hosted around 12,400 users from institutions in more than 70 countries.
CERN is ready for a series of events starting July 3, 2022, with the first celebrations of the tenth anniversary of the discovery of the Higgs boson particle.
On July 5, 2022, there will be collisions at unprecedented energy levels at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The LHC, which is the largest and most powerful particle accelerator in the world, is at the center of conspiracy theories surrounding CERN.
People have been sharing their superstitions about the “gateway” that will open after two beams of high-energy particles travel at close to the speed of light before colliding.
“Anyway, @CERN is opening a multi-dimensional portal on July 5th and will use dark matter! All good,” someone said said on Twitter.
“What if CERN had really opened a portal to hell or something,” said another person. tweeted.
CERN made headlines after the hit show Stranger Things came out in 2016.
Scientists have hypothesized that we can use gravity to test the possibility that other dimensions exist, and the LHC has come under critical scrutiny for this reason.
“One way to look at evidence from other dimensions involves gravity — specifically, the theoretical particle associated with gravity called a graviton,” Energy reported.
“One theory suggests that the graviton can move through all dimensions, not just the ones we live in.
“And if we can create gravitons at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider, we might be able to see evidence that they are leaving our dimensions for other dimensions.”
This theory and the hit TV show was a catalyst for people to feel concerned about the events of July 5.
However, this does not prevent CERN celebrations.
The LHC Run 3 launch will be streamed live on CERN social media.
This will mark the start 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 the events will look at where a decade of Higgs science has taken the field while looking at new perspectives.
