Naming it Black Mesa would of been soooo awesome, but halo is kewl too
Large Hadron Collider is already an awesome name.
Microsoft should just buy the LHC and rename it, it only cost $5 Billion to build...
Bill Gates could buy one with the change from his car!! :)
Naming it Halo would quite possibly be the worst possible thing they could call the LHC. Except maybe other than the "Large Hadron Collider".
Just think, in an alternate universe this thing did get named Halo and did destroy the planet on which it existed. Two close shaves.
Science: SLOW THE FUCK DOWN! You have until 2011 to obliterate existence... throttle yourselves, sirs.
It's a particle accelerator, where have you been the past ten years?! They've been building it for ages and it has the potential to create black holes. (Well, kinda)
Or you could just google it, jeese.
I wish they did. That would be really cool. Nice jokes, Jeff.
i was under the assumption that it was going to be renamed.
does anyone even know what this machine does?
correct me if I'm wrong but isn;t it one of the signs of the apocolypse if a major science experiment gets names after a videogame by a bunch of chemistry nerds?
Naming it 'Halo' in-and-of-itself would have almost certainly caused a rift in the fabric of reality leading to the death of all man kind if for no other reason than that the thing probably runs on the Mac OS.
Hahaha thats funny. Like they would agree to call it Halo.
discombobulator would be a much better name!
God am I glad they rejected it. The first time I read about the name change I let out a huge sigh.
"Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force."
"Dantooine.... they're on Dantooine."
*sigh*..black mesa? ...my God..did no one suggest UAC? Gamers these days.
What is wrong with the name it already has?
I hate the video gaming community sometimes....the second most submitted name was "black mesa".
It just screams a retard in his basement typing away at full force, acne and all with a huge smile saying "LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!"
I R SO SMART!!111one
Screw that, if the LHC was named after such a mediocre franchise I would no longer be interested in science.
Yay! Totally name the thing Halo! IT KILLS GALAXIES!
"We're flattered that the RSC should take such an interest in our public image, and we find the name Halo to be apposite. However, the LHC will not be changing its name."
