7.8 Quake Strikes as CERN Powers Up Beams
7.8 Quake Strikes as CERN Powers Up Beams. Published on Apr. 25, 2015.
UPDATE...The 7.8 magnitude quake struck an area between the capital, Kathmandu, and the city of Pokhara, the US Geological Survey said.
Tremors were felt across the region, with further loss of life in India, Bangladesh, Tibet and on Mount Everest.
The government has declared a state of emergency in the affected areas.
A national police spokesman told the BBC that 970 people had died in the quake, and that more than 1,700 had been injured. At least 539 people were killed in the Kathmandu valley, he added.
Nepali Information Minister Minendra Rijal said there had been "massive damage" at the epicentre, from where little information is emerging. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=xN6fDP9lHK8#t=14 MORE Here: Ring of Fire/Earth Quake and Cern Update. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWqxVlRhBfY More Here: CERN/Beam 2 Spirals/Dumped - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W--WXvvw20E

PARTING THE VEIL:
On Saturday 7, March two of the LHC experiments saw proton beams for the first time after a two-year stop. Beam 2 (anticlockwise) made it through LHCb at 10.30 and Beam 1 (clockwise) passed through ALICE at 17.00. The two experiments were switched on to record so-called splash events, particles emerging from the collision between the proton beam and a block positioned to stop the beam. The proton beams passed through three of the eight sectors of the LHC machine – slightly more than 10 km of the 27 km ring.
“The tests were a big a success – on the one hand because we made it successfully to Point 3 with Beam 1 and onto the beam-dump block in Point 6 with Beam 2, and on the other hand because we discovered many issues, which we can still fix before we start commissioning with beam”, said Verena Kain, one of the two engineers in charge of LHC operations at the weekend.
An essential first step before a full restart, these injection tests are now being followed by the final stages of the hardware commissioning of the machine at the CERN Control Centre. Commissioning with beam is scheduled to start in the week beginning 23 March.
The new model put forward by a team headed by Christoffer Petersson, a theoretical particle physicist from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, suggests that the Higgs boson, discovered by the LHC in 2012, might be responsible for the birth of dark matter particles. According to this model, if supersymmetry is real, the Higgs particle can disintegrate into a photon -- a light carrying particle -- and a dark matter particle.
Supersymmetry predicts that there are more massive “super partners” for every known particle, and is an extension of the Standard Model of particle physics, which governs our understanding of the quantum world. The Higgs boson, which is responsible for imparting mass to all other particles, was the last missing piece that completed the Standard Model. However, even the completed version of this theory fails to incorporate gravity and explain the origin and preponderance of dark matter in the universe. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C12cMII8gSs MORE Here: STARGATE- POWER UP THE RINGS in 720 HD - Dark Matter Being Converted into Plasma by Magnetic Rings, What Cern is trying to do. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcIWzh81w9g
