Scientists plan $1.5bn laser strong enough 'to tear the fabric of space'

A laser powerful enough to tear apart the fabric of space could be built in Britain.

The major scientific project will follow in the footsteps of the Large Hadron Collider and will answer questions about the universe.

The laser will be capable of producing a beam of light so intense that it will be similar to the light the earth receives from the sun but focused on a speck smaller than a pin prick.

Scientists say it will be so powerful they will be able to boil the very fabric of space and create a vacuum.

A vacuum fizzles with mysterious particles that come in and out of existence but the phenomenon happens so fast that no-one has ever actually been able to prove it.

It is hoped the Extreme Light Infrastructure Ultra-High Field Facility would allow scientists to prove the particles are real by pulling the vacuum fabric apart.

Scientists even believe it might help them to prove whether other dimensions actually exist.

“A vacuum fizzles with mysterious particles that come in and out of existence but the phenomenon happens so fast that no-one has ever actually been able to prove it.”

I’m a billionaire, but I live so humbly that no one can prove it.

Obama created millions of jobs, but because Bush destroyed so many jobs, no one can prove it.

They forgot to add: and validate global warming. The Brits generally add that to all scientific statements.

Harold Camping funded the project.

It’s running behind.

What could happen ~ well, they could mess around with it and aim it at the wrong thing ~ let's say the Sun ~ and that might start a supernova.

That'd be pretty bad.

Worse would be they open up to another universe or dimension that is totally incompatible with ours and that precipitates a total meltdown of both our plain of existence and another one.

I think God would be angry with that.

Let me guess, this is at East Anglia? Must be kinda tough getting those grants lately. Just make the story so outrageous that everyone will throw money at them.

BTW, were we not taught that space was already a vacuum?

Yeah, but will this laser fit on a shark’s head?

And we had to get rid of Freon to save the earth’s atmosphere? Someone was obviously pulling our legs.

But driving my SUV is more harmful to our delicate ‘greenhouse’ than this spacial fabric tearing laser could ever be, right?

And all these years I thought space was a vacuum. Shows I am a real fossil. hee hee hee Sounds like a funding scam to me.
