Interesting little story about the LHC.

http://www.symmetrymagazine.org/article ... -ball-test

LHC passes ‘ping-pong ball’ test
Physicists sent an ultra-clean, miniature ping-pong ball through part of the Large Hadron Collider beam pipe to test for hidden defects.


CERN Bulletin: LHC gets the ball rolling
Sometimes the best solutions in high-energy physics research are surprisingly low-tech.
Physicists sent a carefully sterilized, slightly-smaller-than-regulation ping-pong ball through a 2-mile section of the Large Hadron Collider today. They were searching for possible defects in the connections between magnets that can arise as they change temperature.
The so-called radio-frequency ball, first developed in 2007, carried a small transmitter that allowed scientists to track its progress. It moved through simple suction, pinging every third of a mile.
"The beam pipes are fragile,” says Vincent Baglin, the leader of the LHC beam vacuum section at CERN. “We always have to check and crosscheck to minimize any problems. This is a simple test that can prevent complicated issues."
The LHC's 17-mile circumference is composed of eight straight sections joined together by eight arcs. More than 1600 magnets bend and focus the beams of particles that circle the collider at close to the speed of light. Interconnections, some of which resemble long, copper fingers, ensure that electricity flows from one magnet to the next.
These interconnections are installed at room temperature, but they must operate at well below freezing when the machine is turned on. The metal contracts by about 40 millimeters when this happens. Usually, the fingers manage to stay flat. But, occasionally, the fingers buckle, creating a bulge that can block a particle beam.
Testing this with the actual beam would be a months-long, labor-intensive process, requiring cooling down the LHC and then warming it back up again to fix any identified problems.
So scientists opt for a test that takes about 15 minutes per section instead. Rather than sending a beam through the pipe, they send the RF ball. If it gets stuck, technicians use an endoscope to look into the pipe and diagnose the problem.
The LHC passed today’s test, but it will need to pass many more before its scheduled restart in 2015.

Would like to say thank you too jrrdw, he machined a custom piston for my gun, he designed it his way , with 2 o rings nd tapped it in the front for rubber washers!!! Great man to have work done by,, def going back to him:)

Excited for this!

I've seen Ozzy in concert before but Black Sabbath will be something else...
As a 14 year old, I would never have thought I'd see the day where I would get to hear the sirens of 'War Pigs' open a concert with Ozzy, Geezer, and Tony coming out on stage.

Here is my beauty :D 4.5mm Weihrauch HW97K synthetic stock.
Absolutely wonderful, heavy and steady. The trigger is a little heavy but maybe that's because I'm used to airsoft.
The scope isn't very good but it's the only one I have for now.
Haven't shot much, the scope isn't zeroed yet :lol: gonna do the test shooting this afternoon :twisted:

You can adjust it :wink:

Also, if you think that's heavy, try the Hämmerli :D
