http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20100215/sc_nm/us_physics_temperature Hottest temperature ever they say. Protons melt at 2 trillion degrees and they got the temp up to 4 trillion degrees. Is it just me, or does anyone else think this is some kind of scam? I mean...if protons are melting at that temperature, surely the thermometer would melt too! How do they figure it? Obviously some kind of wacky math formula, but if the sun is 50 billion degrees and we feel the temperature of it 93 million miles away, how could 4 trillion degrees not melt everything in a 50 mile radius? I know some of you will say "oh it only lasted a millisecond, so its like when you move your hand really fast over a candle and you dont feel it. But that said...going from zero to 4 trillion degrees in a millisecond? I dont believe it. But i bet some of you believe it with your blind faith in science. Some of you that have no clue how this kind of stuff works believe it just because scientists said it. I would love to see how they explain the origins of the big bang with this information. (and how the giant particle accelerator formed before the big bang along with the guy to turn it on to create that heat.) The funny this is, the scientists want this data to be real so badly they will not question whether it is real or correct.
