Sixty Symbols asked a bunch of physicists what would happen if you placed your hand in the particle beam at the LHC. They didn't know the answer to that so they went digging.
The LHC's beam is focussed down to a tiny spot, less than 1 millimeter across. Also, it contains as much energy as an aircraft transporter in motion. From "I don't know" to "dude you're going to lose your hand for sure" I guess I'm going ahead with the latter.
But check out the video below, because physicists make it sound so much smarter than what I just said.
Apple has so much money, its spaceship campus is already underway right now. And now, you get a birds-eye view of it courtesy of a YouTuber with a drone and GoPro camera. Here's a peek of it. Read more
You can punish a GoPro however you like, but it looks like it'll take on any challenge like a champ. The most recent torture was sending a GoPro videoing an experimental rocket in action. Fire and cameras don't usually mix, but the GoPro survived. Read more
Exoskeletons are the next evolution of human strength. Pneumatic-powered cyborg arms will let you do the things that were impossible without the help of a few or more. This guy created his own version. Read more
