'Very 1400s of you': Elon Musk roasted as his CERN tech is 'demonic' tweet splits Internet
Elon Musk shared a meme on Twitter that says CERN's Large Hadron Collider is 'demonic technology unlike anything the world has ever seen'
The tech giant and billionaire Elon Musk has hit social media with another blast. This time Tesla's founder and CEO called out CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. Musk shared a meme on Twitter in which he called CERN’s Large Hadron Collider “demonic technology." The meme read, “Please let me use the CERN Large Hadron Collider. I am normal and can be trusted with a demonic technology unlike anything the world has ever seen."
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator located underground in Geneva, Switzerland. The Large Hadron Collider was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research with over 10,000 scientists, hundreds of universities, and laboratories, with the collaboration of over 100 countries. It lies in a tunnel 27 kilometres (17 mi) in circumference and as deep as 175 metres (574 ft) beneath the France–Switzerland border near Geneva. The LHC is one of the most expensive scientific instruments ever built, with a budget of €7.5 billion (approximately $9 billion or £6.19 billion as of June 2010).
The Large Hadron Collider is looking for dark matter, using its unique accelerator to smash atoms together in a discovery that could completely change science. According to CERN scientists, the universe's stars, planets, and galaxies account for only 5 per cent of its matter. The LHC first became operational on September 10, 2008, but initial testing was delayed for 14 months, from 19 September 2008 to 20 November 2009, due to a magnet quench incident that damaged over 50 superconducting magnets, their mountings, and the vacuum pipe.
It is no surprise that Elon's tweet gained huge attention and split the internet. Many users roasted him and there were few who agreed with Musk's point.
"Back to calling technology you don't understand 'demonic', are we? Very 1400s of you, Elon", a user wrote while slamming Musk. "It's the beginning of the end of the world. Pass the popcorn," another user roasted Musk.

Very 1400s of you, Elon.

One user slammed Musk saying, "Bro, you got enough money to build your own. Build it & claim you did it so that you could "fact check" their research.
Rumors about it being a "hellgate" are greatly exaggerated. The mortally challenged mean us no harm & want to be our friends".

Rumors about it being a "hellgate" are greatly exaggerated. The mortally-challenged mean us no harm & want to be our friends.
One user wrote in support of Musk, "The possible outcomes are all unfathomable. Why would we as a populous allow them to test without restriction?" To which a user responded, "CERN's particle accelerator can't create a cosmic black hole. The machine also won't cause a shift in time or space. The machine is being used by researchers to analyze how particles work in the universe."
