|The Man Who Stuck His Head In A Particle Accelerator

The story of the man who stuck his head into an operating particle accelerator. Fascinating.
As he was leaning over the piece of equipment he stuck his head through the part of the accelerator that the proton beam was running through. Supposedly, he saw a flash that was “brighter than a thousand suns” at this point. Interestingly, he did not feel any pain when this happened.
Despite the beam going through his brain, his intellectual capacity remained the same as before…
Yes. I would imagine so.
