Should the Large Hadron Collider be reopened for research in 2015?

  • The Large Hadron Collider should be reopened for more research.

    As long as it is operated safely, I feel that the Large Hadron Collider's benefits towards scientific research outweigh any negative impacts that it could have, in it's present form. Further, there haven't been any reported incidents that I am aware of with its current operation. The experiments that occur within it are typical of what goes on in the universe, just in a controlled environment.

  • Yes It Should

    I believe the Large Hadron Collider should be reopened for research in 2015. This huge apparatus cost a fortune to build and it shouldn't be sitting idle. I believe scientists should take advantage of this machine and use it to make new discoveries. It was built for this purpose and it should be used.

  • We can learn.

    Yes, the Large Hadron Collider should be reopened for research in 2015, because there are a lot of things about sub-atomic particles that we have yet to discovery. The Collider is one of the best facilities that we have for this type of research. Scientists hold it in very high regard.

  • Excessive waste of money

    The LHC has the ominous title of being the World's most expensive experiment. An experiment that despite it's cost being greater than any single country can bear it has yielded nothing of any consequences. It has not answered any questions. It has not resolved the standard model and it has not saved a life or solved any of the pressing problems we actually face. It consumes so much energy that it cannot be run during the winter as the European power grid cant take the load! In truth it is a cathedral to scientific materialism. It's purpose to prove scientific materialism: the religion of the arrogant. Thus the LHC is nothing more than an attempt to prove a religious belief. As with all religious zealots no cost is to much even if that cost results in closing schools, hospitals and social services .... We can't afford to indulge these fanatics.

  • This is for nuclear research and should not go forward.

    The Large Hadron Collider should not be reopened for research in 2015. This is because this object has to deal with nuclear research. Nuclear research should be halted and not continue at all unless it has to do with explicity saving lives. There is so much danger associated with nuclear power, that we shouldn't encourage it.
