What if you put your hand in the Large Hadron Collider? It isn't the craziest question in the world, since birds are dropping bread in various parts and breaking things
. But the University of Nottingham, and their Sixty Symbols project
, is on the case. Sort of. Turns out that even for LHC experts, the effects on human skin of 300,000,000,000,000 protons moving near the speed of light is unclear.
If you aren't familiar with Sixty Symbols, it is a video project to explain symbols in physics and astronomy, but they are totally liars because there are well over 100 outstanding videos there.
But don't go check it out
or you will be there all week.
