'Stranger Things' is one of the most popular science-fiction shows in the world. The story revolves around Winona Ryder, David Harbour, and a group of "nerds" who know about a portal to another dimension which is known as the "upside down". All sorts of demonic creatures live in that dimension. "Strangers", which is a collective term to describe the fans of the show, have come across a bizarre yet interesting conspiracy theory related to an  experiment taking place on July 5, 2022, at the world's largest particle accelerator.

The Large Hadron Collider or the LHC was shut down for the last three years but the European Organization for Nuclear Research is celebrating its tenth anniversary by restarting it. The LHC is a 17-mile tunnel that is located 150 feet below the ground and serves as a testing chamber for studies on high-energy impacts. It is also the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator. Scientists have scheduled to experiment on July 5, 2022, due to which there will be collisions at unprecedented energy levels at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

Strangers have now come up with a theory where fiction meets reality after the particle accelerator's reopening. They have linked the real-life CERN to the show's "upside down" dimension. Many Twitter users have come up with their own theories and did not hesitate to share them online. One Twitter user wrote, "T-MINUS 2 hours for the #cern atlas project tests their hadron collider. I really hope you don't rip a hole in space/time, create a multiverse or start a real life stranger things."

Another Twitter user tweeted, "Anyways, @CERN is opening a multi-dimensional portal on July, 5 and will be using dark matter! Everything is fine."

However, the conspiracy theories are not only limited to the fans of the famous Netflix show. The researchers at CERN are also well aware of these multi-verse theories and are informed about the similarity of their facility to the fictional "Upside Down" world.

Researchers at CERN said that on July 5, the experiment will kick off a new season of scientific exploration into the "properties of matter under extreme temperature and density". It will be telecasted across all CERN'S media channels.

This is not the first time fans have tried to connect a fictional world to reality with the help of various conspiracy theories. Shows like 'Money Heist' and 'Better Call Saul' have also encouraged fans to come up with their different quirky theories, some of which were even liked by the creators and actors of the shows.
