Hit by a Particle Accelerator Beam

September 16th, 2008 by Mori

Anatoli Bugorski was checking a component of the U-70 synchrotron particle accelerator when he accidentally put his head in the beam’s path. It was the fatidic day of July 13, 1978, and as the safety devices failed, Bogorski later told that he saw a flash "brighter than a thousand suns", as protons near the speed of light traveled right through his head. But he did not feel any pain.

The proton beam went through the left side of his head. Soon that side of his face swelled beyond recognition, and in the next days the skin fell, showing the path the particle beam had through his face, brain and cranium.

Radiation doses hundreds of times weaker are fatal, and Anatoli Bugorski was therefore taken to a hospital in Moscow where the doctors could watch his inevitable demise. But this was Soviet Russia, where particles accelerate YOU!!

Bugorski not only survived, but completed his PhD without virtually any damage to his intellectual abilities, except for a marked fatigue, loss of hearing and having the left side of his face paralyzed. He married and has a son.

It sounded to me like the beginning of a Marvel Comics character. Spidey, Hulk, etc.

At first the title had me thinking something went wrong with the new particle accelerator. This is better though and funny also. What a mistake to make.
Oops I put my head in the particle accelerator.

Nice. A one particle wide hole straight through the cranium.

don't they use a whole bunch of particles at once because it's hard to aim just one particle against another?
