What would happen if you put your hand in front of the CERN LHC? [Video]
posted June 12 2012 8:26.58 by Giorgos Lazaridis

You sure know by now the staff from Sixty Symbols... Well, the journalist asked them a question that the users had asked, and this question was, what would happen if i put my hand in front of the Large Hadron Collider's proton beam (LHC)? And guess what! No one had ever thought about it!!!

So, to solve this universal unsolved mystery, they went to ask the people who work for the LHC. The beam that travels in the particle accelerator travels in a speed of about 99.9% the speed of light. In size it is very small, less than a millimeter in diameter, but taking into account that the kinetic energy is mass multiplied by the speed, in proportions it is like a train traveling at full speed.

I won't say more, watch the following video :D
