Romanian Calin Alexa is one of the researchers that work at the ATLAS experiment in Large Hadron Collider. In an interview for HotNews.ro Alexa explains the LHC Computing Grid project that might revolutionize the internet. He declared that the project was launched initially in 2002 and represents a milestone in building a Grid calculus system for the ALICE, ATLAS, CMS, LHCB experiments for the LCH accelerator.
Alexa explained that the Large Hadron Collider of CERN is a colossal machine located in a 27 kilometre (17 mile) tunnel buried under 100 meters of rock, at the borders of Switzerland and France between Lake Geneva and the Jura mountains.
Beams of protons will be accelerated in opposite directions through the tunnel, which is supercooled to 1.9 degrees above absolute zero (minus 271C). When prompted about the importance of the experiment, Alexa declared that we are facing the greatest scientific discovery that will re-write all manuals because it adds up important pieces in the elementary particle table.
Nonetheless, Alexa declared that even though there are a series of foreign reports or CERN documents questioning the security of the accelerator, in the last 20 years scientists have invested a lot in the experiment's security.
