Did CERN Hadron Collider Bring Down Germanwings A320?

Some are speculating the possibility for the unexplained plane crash near Cern of Germanwings A320. 

In this internet age, the conspiracy theories are already swirling about this recent plane crash near the site where the CERN hadron collider is and it is also recently been cranked up and running for various experiments.

Initial reports suggested that the Germanwings Flight 4U9525 just dropped out of the sky. Further analysis indicates that the plane made a downward steady decent for 8 minutes and showed no distress calls or any proof of pilot struggle with the airbus.

Could the magnetic field created by CERN LHC have some how disrupted the planes navigation?

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and most powerful particle collider, and the largest single machine in the world, built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) from 1998 to 2008.

Its aim is to allow physicists to test the predictions of different theories of particle physics and high-energy physics like the Standard Model, and particularly prove or disprove the existence of the theorized Higgs boson and of the large family of new particles predicted by supersymmetric theories. The discovery of a particle matching the Higgs boson was confirmed by data from the LHC in 2013. The LHC is expected to address some of the unsolved questions of physics, advancing human understanding of physical laws. It contains seven detectors, each designed for certain kinds of research.

The LHC was built in collaboration with over 10,000 scientists and engineers from over 100 countries, as well as hundreds of universities and laboratories. It lies in a tunnel 27 kilometres (17 mi) in circumference, as deep as 175 metres (574 ft) beneath the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland. It is also the longest machine ever built.

As of 2014, the LHC remains the largest and most complex experimental facility ever built. Its synchrotron is designed to collide two opposing particle beams of either protons at up to 4 teraelectronvolts (4 TeV or 0.64 microjoules), or lead nuclei (574 TeV per nucleus, or 2.76 TeV per nucleon), with energies to be increased to around 6.5 TeV (13 TeV collision energy) —about seven times the previous record— in 2015. Collision data was also anticipated to be produced at an unprecedented rate of tens of petabytes per year, to be analysed by a grid-based computer network infrastructure connecting 140 computing centers in 35 countries  (by 2012 the LHC Computing Grid was the world’s largest computing grid, comprising over 170 computing facilities in a worldwide network across 36 countries).

The LHC went live on 10 September 2008, with proton beams successfully circulated in the main ring of the LHC for the first time, but nine days later a faulty electrical connection led to the rupture of a liquid helium enclosure, causing both a magnet quench and several tons of helium gas escaping with explosive force. The incident resulted in damage to over 50 superconducting magnets and their mountings, and contamination of the vacuum pipe, and delayed further operations by 14 months. On November 20, 2009 proton beams were successfully circulated again, with the first recorded proton–proton collisions occurring three days later at the injection energy of 450 GeV per beam. On March 30, 2010, the first collisions took place between two 3.5 TeV beams, setting a world record for the highest-energy man-made particle collisions,  and the LHC began its planned research program.

The LHC has discovered a massive 125 GeV boson (which subsequent results confirmed to be the long-sought Higgs boson) and several composite particles (hadrons) like the χb (3P) bottomonium state, created a quark–gluon plasma, and recorded the first observations of the very rare decay of the Bs meson into two muons (Bs0 → μ+μ), which challenged the validity of existing models of supersymmetry.

The LHC operated at 3.5 TeV per beam in 2010 and 2011 and at 4 TeV in 2012. Proton–proton collisions are the main operation mode. It collided protons with lead nuclei for two months in 2013 and used lead–lead collisions for about one month each in 2010, 2011 and 2013. The LHC went into shutdown for upgrades to increase beam energy to 6.5 TeV per beam, commissioning of the equipment, with beam is scheduled to begin during the week of March 23.
