Security would tell you to stop that.

Your hand could be useful. Put your head in.

Start small. Use a microwave.

Or a blender.

You would end up with Adam Smith’s “Invisible Hand.”

You would gain all sorts of cool superpowers, of course! Didn’t everyone learn that in comic books as a kid?

Is a vacuum. Once you breach the vacuum, alarms would sound, auto-shutdown sequences would begin and an orderly shutdown of the system would ensue.

Taking your real point, if you were very tiny and in a pressure suit, and inside the tunnel while it was operating, you would be bombarded with high energy particles. You would notice bright flashes as they interacted with your cornea, and you would eventually die because the high-energy particles would screw up your DNA.

But I'm just a cook, what do I know about magnetrons and microwave cavity amplifiers?

You would have a heck of a bill from the LHC staff. First, for damaging the LHC, second for having to clean up the mess.

The most interesting thing about the video is that SCIENTISTS appear to be smart enough that none of them have ever tried putting their hand in a particle beam collider just to see what happens. Therefore none of them 'knew' what would happen, but could only theorize.

Sounds like there’s a possibility of a subatomic billiards effect within your hand. That couldn’t be good.

It would be transported to the 13th century where it would be declared a ‘hand of the saints’ and enshrined in a cathedral. People would bring their babies to be blessed by your hand. Rejoice!

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthadvice/3352420/Trust-me-Im-a-junior-doctor-Tree-root-man-is-innocent-victim.html

The tale of Dede, a 35-year-old Indonesian fisherman, which was first reported last month, is heart-warming. The “roots” in question began to grow from his limbs after he cut his leg as a teenager.

Gradually, these “cutaneous horns” became so large that he could not work, walk properly or use his hands. Consequently, he could no longer care for his children, and his fellow villagers subjected him to abuse and ridicule.

Local doctors were baffled as to the growths’ cause – until Dr Anthony Gaspari, a dermatology expert at the University of Maryland in the US, heard about Dede’s plight and flew to Indonesia to investigate.

Blood tests showed that the growths are caused by rampant human papilloma virus (a wart virus), but it is still a mystery as to why it is so out of control in Dede’s body. Dr Gaspari has suggested treatment with vitamin A and begun further research to understand the pathological process at play.

Dede, a 35 year old Javanese fisherman lived a normal life until a cut to his leg in his teenage years left him with a strange infection – a virus that led to “root-like” growths coming out of his hands and legs. He eventually the lost use of his hands and had to join a traveling freak show. Now, his story has come to life in a TV documentary “My life as a tree”, as he fights for permission to be treated in the US. American scientists think they may have figured out a way to treat his strange, wart-like virus, but the Indonesian governement wants to keep any experimental drug that is develeped from the man as Indonesian property, and is refusing treatment. A strange, strange story.

Who knows? Try it and report back to us. My guess is certain safety features in the unit would prevent it’s operation if you were to attempt this I would certainly imagine. But don’t let that stop you. This is scientific pursuit here, right? I might suggest though any device with the word ‘’collider’’ in it isn’t some place you should go putting parts of the human body into. Just saying.

Nah, pretty much any culinary school graduate can calculate path loss in dBm at microwave frequencies.

You couldn’t. If you were in the tunnel when the collider was operating, the radiation would kill you in less than a second. How could you put your hand in the beam if you were dead?
