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.

You’d do the hokey-pokey and you’d turn yourself about.

It would collide with a Hadron?

It would reappear on Uranus.

Great, now I have “Demon with a Glass Hand” stuck in my head for no apparent reason.

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

LOL--- and hopefully there won't be any Klingons in proximity.

Maybe the hand would show up somewhere else...
