What Would Happen if You Stuck Your Hand in the Large Hadron Collider Stream?

Comment by Gaytor on September 23, 2010 at 12:05am
It's an interesting question. The science involved is outside of my realm of even conceiving. I'm about to make an argument from ignorance. But I don't buy for a second that the energy and mass could go through your hand without damage. It's got to make contact. I picture a 7.62 mm round versus a 9 mm... the speed of the 7.62 round is devastating but with a smaller diameter. The mass of a proton is tiny, but a group of them at the speed of light... your hand first!

also..what about the energy that is spread out on your appendage after the proton goes through you. I mean..with a bullet, the energy is absorbed throughout the target. I guess it would have to sort of have the same reaction. let just say..I don't think it would be a very clean hole...
