well, i started with the DA VINCI CODE, and now reading the ANGEL AND DEMON.. just cant wait to read the DIGITAL FORTRESS and the DECEPTION POINT…. and i heard there’s one more coming, entitled as “illuminati”… hmm, guess i wanna get it too~!
ok, now let’s talk about ANGEL AND DEMON..
does CERN really exist?
the answer should be yes. CERN, known as the “European Laboratory for Particle Physics” or “European Organization for Nuclear Research” is actually the world’s largest particle physics laboratory… situated in Geneva, they are now celebrating the 50th anniversary, in memory of 50 years in science since September 1954.
yes, the World Wide Web (www) is actually invented by them… interesting huh?
more interesting here.. actually while reading this part, i remember what my lecturer tought me in the engineering class. he did actually explained this to me, that’s why i became more excited when i read about this in the book..
what is antimatter?
For every particle (matter) there is a corresponding antiparticle (antimatter). Antiparticles are the same as the corresponding matter particle in every respect except for their opposite charges.
A proton is electrically positive: an anti-proton is electrically negative. They both have the exact same mass, so they are affected in the same way by gravity.
When a particle and its antiparticle meet, they annihilate into pure energy. This energy may then give rise to neutral force-carrier particles, such as photons, Z bosons, or gluons.
and just imagine how advanced CERN are when they actually routinely produced the antimatter at CERN (more than 10 million particles per second.)
