CERN – Supercollider Worship in America
Illuminati worship of the “Supercollider” or LHC.
They would have you believe this nonsense. They have had this technology for a very long time. Just not the means to put it into effect until now.
Homer Simpson ‘discovered the Higgs boson’
Homer Simpson predicted the mass of the Higgs boson in a 1998 episode of The Simpsons, according to a science writer.
In The Wizard of Evergreen Terrace episode, Homer is shown in front of a blackboard working on an equation.
Twelve years later, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider discovered the Higgs boson.
Simon Singh, author of The Simpsons and their Mathematical Secrets, told a literary festival audience that the series is staffed by writers with an interest in maths.
“The Simpsons is the most mathematical TV show on prime-time television in history. A lot of the writers on The Simpsons are mathematicians,” he said.
“That equation predicts the mass of the Higgs boson. If you work it out, you get the mass of a Higgs boson that’s only a bit larger than the nano-mass of a Higgs boson actually is.
“It’s kind of amazing as Homer makes this prediction 14 years before it was discovered.”
The Simpsons may “encourage and nourish” maths lovers, Singh said, adding that he hoped teenagers would be inspierd by the fact the show’s creators shared their interests.
All this on the heels of the massive ignition of Cern estimating this will be the most power put through their system to date. Pay close attention to what Bell says Cern has achieved, The Internet, Cell Phone Screens and more…. This is very interesting to state they were the ones to have invented these processes.
CERN: 2015 restart causes tech rethink
OpenStack helps LHC boffins cope with predicted 400 PB / year firehose
Vid Going beyond “seeing” the Higgs boson to “understanding” it is going to cause a data flood for CERN researchers, and its infrastructure services manager Tim Bell says that’s pushed the outfit to increasingly look beyond its own iron.
Speaking to the OpenStack summit in Paris, Bell says the challenges even of the old Large Hadron Collider data flood was considerable. The LHC experiments have created a 100 petabyte archive (27 PB of which was added this year).
To deal with that, the organisation has 11,000 servers, 75,000 disk drives and 45,000 tapes (because the data needs a 20 year lifespan).
The twice-the-energy upgrade is going to ramp that up even further, Bell said, so that by 2023, the organisation will need around fifty times as much compute, and will need to store 400 PB a year.
There’s no hope of achieving that on its own. Already, Bell told the conference, “from a computing point of view, we’re actually no longer leading edge.”
Under constraints of budget, data centre capacity, staff, and a fixed time window, CERN has set up collaborations. Chief of these is a “child cell” in Budapest, Hungary, with dual 100 Gbps links back to Geneva.
That, Bell told the conference, is where OpenStack has come into play. Its implementation, tested from 2011 and live from 2013 based on the Grizzly release, presents users with what looks like a single machine.
“[Users] want to click on the interface get a cup of coffee and come back to a working system,” Bell explained. Moreover, users expect their VMs to have continuity, no matter what changes are made in the back end.
The current status of the CERN OpenStack cloud is around 75,000 cores on more than 3,000 servers, with three other instances totalling 45,000 cores, and the group expects to pass 150,000 cores by Q1 2015.
CERN’s other key plan is to use OpenStack to create federated clouds that will include not only other academic institutions, but increasingly, public cloud.
Bell highlighted work with RackSpace that arose out of discussions in 2013, with the two organisations developing code (now in production) to let people deploy federated identity on OpenStack.
